Fish filling

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 150g mixed fish cut into bite sized chunks
  • 50g small cooked prawns or larger prawns, chopped (for older children)
  • 10 baby asparagus spears, steamed until soft (or a handful of chopped spinach)

For the white sauce

  • 1 tablespoon plain flour
  • 1 large teaspoon dairy free spread or olive oil
  • 300ml Aptamil Pepti

Step 1

Boil or steam the sweet potato cubes until soft, about 10–15 mins.

Whilst cooking, prepare the formula as per instructions on pack.

Step 3

When the sweet potato is cooked, mash with the formula over heat to drive off any excess liquid.

Step 4

In the meantime put the fish in a dish and cover with cling film. Pierce the film and cook the fish in the microwave for 3–5 mins until tender. Remove and discard any skin.

Step 6
