Starting this year Jaycob has been eating very well. He’s been a fussy eater since he first started eating hard food and in his second year he would demand for a couple of dishes of egg or fish. They were his go to especially on a moody day. But he’s since been eating a wider variety of foods and actually enjoys them very much and making my life a whole lot easier. He’s recently been having a particular love for salmon and since he’s always loved cheese and milk, I thought I’d make this treat for him.
This is a simple stove-top recipe made from the same one cast-iron pot. It’s almost as easy as just tossing everything into a pot and turning the heat up.
1 cup fresh salmon cut into small cubes
3 cups of pasta
half cup onions
1 cup bacon
half head of broccoli
2 cups milk
1 cup shredded parmesan
10g of butter
salt and pepper
In your pot melt 10g or about 1 tbsp of butter and grill the salmon.
Once cooked, remove the salmon and set it aside, then in the same pot saute onions and bacon for a few minutes.
Add broccoli and fresh milk and bring it to a boil.
Add your pasta, stir, close the lid and let it cook over medium heat for about 8-10 minutes, until the pasta is just about done.
Sprinkle shredded parmesan cheese and stir.
Top with cooked salmon.
1 – Cooking salmon – Here I chop the salmon into small cubes and cook with butter. Once done, remove the salmon and leave the oils in the pot.
2 – Saute onions and bacon – Once the salmon is removed, saute onions and bacon in the pot over medium heat for a few minutes.
3 – Add the broccoli and milk and bring it to a boil.
4 – Add pasta – Season the sauce with salt and pepper. Once boiling, add the pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes. I’m using Garofalo Organic pasta in shapes of stars and moons. I have an affinity for cute pasta shapes and their shapes hold up well when cooked.
5 – Add cheese and top with salmon- Once the pasta is soft and just about ready to eat, add parmesan cheese and stir, then top with cooked salmon.
