This meal is delicious for all the family and takes little preparation aside from preparing the cheese sauce.
The below serves one toddler and one adult.
|Salmon in a Cheese Sauce with Sweet Potato and Vegetables|
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp plain flour
- 1/2 tsp mustard powder
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 150ml-200ml milk
- 1 bay leaf
- Generous grating of nutmeg
- 50g Cheddar or other hard cheese - I used Pilgrim's Choice here)
- 2 sweet potatoes
- 2 small fillets salmon
- Handful frozen peas
- Baby corn
- Mange touts
- Tenderstem broccoli (or any other vegetables you have to hand)
Now prepare the cheese sauce by melting the butter gently in a heavy-bottomed pan then adding the flour once melted. Mix with a balloon whisk and slowly add the milk, mustard powder, bay and pepper and allow to gently heat. Add the cheese and the nutmeg and stir with a wooden spoon. Once satisfied with the sauce, set aside. If too thin, add a tiny bit of cornflour and cook out. Now set aside.
Place the salmon into a small ovenproof dish and cover with the cheese sauce and place into the oven for ten minutes.
Now prepare the vegetables by either placing into boiled water for five minutes or steaming for 9 minutes.
Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and scoop out the flesh and pop onto the plate.
Drain the vegetables and add to the plate and finally remove the salmon and cheese sauce and dish up. Enjoy!
