Do you line up colorful cubes of purees into pretty rows? Or are you a die-hard BLWer? I tend to find myself somewhere in between. As such, this recipe for salmon mango puree and bites is for EVERYONE.
A note about salmon: Shop for wild-caught. It has significantly more vitamin D3 than its farmed cousins. Also, be sure to check for and remove all bones before cooking.
I often use dulse instead of salt because it’s salty while also giving your baby important trace minerals, like iodine. And because it’s seaweed, it gives your baby a unique source of fiber which ultimately helps to feed and diversify your little one’s wee gut microbes.
Pure Radiance C is made of things like camu camu, acerola berry, and rose hips. These whole foods and herbs are an excellent source of vitamin C and antioxidants. What’s more, they help with the absorption of iron.
Salmon mango puree with superfood avocado
For the steamed salmon:
- 4 ounce salmon filet, wild caught
- 1 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup bone broth (if blending into a puree)
- 1/4 teaspoon Pure Radiance C (if blending into a puree)
For superfood avocado:
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 tablespoon packed with cilantro leaves
- 1 teaspoon dulse flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon Pure Radiance C
- Fill a deep pot and fill with 1 – 2 cups of water and bring to a boil.
- Place frozen mango and salmon (skin side down) into a steamer basket. Sprinkle with dulse flakes. Once water reaches a boil, lower heat. Insert basket, cover pot, and steam for 8 minutes.
- While salmon and mango steam, use an immersion blender or baby food maker to puree superfood avocado ingredients. *I used a 2-cup glass jar and this immersion blender. Set aside.
- Carefully remove steamer insert along with salmon and mango from the pot. Allow salmon to cool before offering it to baby.
- If making a salmon mango puree, place salmon, mango, bone broth, and Pure Radiance C into a blending vessel and puree until smooth.
