Suitable for weaning babies. When weaning my babies, I found batch cooking and freezing meals a great help. I’ve kept this in mind with the measurements provided but if batch cooking is not for you, please feel free to reduce the quantities accordingly. This meal is super easy with minimal prep and is suitable for all the family.


For the Sauce:

50 g butter

1 large shallot, diced

50 g flour

100 mls cream

500 mls fish or vegetable stock

salt & freshly ground black pepper, to season

400g cod or other white fish
