Simple salmon pasta

  • 4
  • A little work

Quick and easy salmon pasta recipe suitable for babies from 6 months. Makes a great lunch for mum too!



  • small salmon fillet 1, checked for bones
  • Baby pasta 50g
  • small leek 1/2, sliced and diced
  • Broccoli 50g
  • parmesan cheese 3 tbsp, grated
  • crème fraiche 4 tbsp
  • Milk 5 tbsp
  • Olive oil 1 tbsp


  • Step 1

    Place the salmon in a microwaveable bowl with 2 tablespoons of milk and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes. Check the salmon for any bones and flake.

  • Step 2

    Cook the baby pasta. If you have a steamer pan, steam the broccoli above the boiling pasta for 4-5 minutes. Alternatively, cook the broccoli in a pan of boiling water for 4 mins.

  • Step 3

    Place the leek in a saucepan with a little olive oil and cook over the heat until soft. Add the rest of the milk, bring to the boil, then add the salmon and poach for 3-4 mins.

  • Step 4

    Stir in the cheese until melted, then add the pasta.

  • Step 5

    Stir in the crème fraiche and mash to the desired consistency.

  • If you don’t have parmesan to hand, any full flavoured cheese, such as Cheddar, can be used.
  • This makes a great lunch for mum too – add an extra touch of cheese and some black pepper – and don’t puree!
