salmon & sweet potato bites

This is a simple recipe for baby-led weaning (BLW) that can be whipped up quite fast if you cook the sweet potato the night before or have some left over – i often will pop the sweet potato in the oven the night before as im cooking dinner and then let it cool in the fridge overnight so these can be then assembled the next day. These are suitable when your baby is tolerating both egg and fish allergens separately.

This recipe calls for precooked sweet potato. I usually place an entire sweet potato in the oven (170C) for about 1 hour until soft (skin still on). Then when cooked allow to cool and peel off the skin ready to mix. You can do this the night before too!
