For this baby purée recipe, I wanted to introduce seafood to my baby, shrimps more precisely. Personally, I love seafood and I think it is good to make our babies discover it relatively early to accustom his palate.
We can start feeding our babies with seafood around 12 months, but only cooked! So we will avoid mussels, oysters… it will wait! Anyway, we have so many foods to introduce to baby before 😉
So we’re going to cook shrimps to our babies. We will mix the shrimps with coconut milk, carrots and tomatoes, with a touch of fresh coriander. We can even add curry as a bonus! A small baby jar with Thaï flavors <3
Here is what you need to make this recipe baby: Carrot and tomato with shrimps coconut milk curry and coriander baby purée recipe (From 12 months, you’ll get around 9 oz):
- - 1 Carrot (3,5oz / 100g)
- - 1 potato (2,5oz / 70g)
- - 1 tomato (1,6oz / 45g)
- - About 5 shrimps (35g)
- - Coconut milk (about 1 fl oz / 30ml)
- - 1 pinch of fresh coriander
- - Olive oil (1 tbsp)
- - Mineral water
Let’s start with our carrot. We wash it, peel it and slice it into thin slices. We put those slices in our steam basket.
And now the potato. We wash it, peel it like the carrot and cut it into thin slices. We put those slices with our carrot slices in our steam basket.
And, our tomato. We remove the flower, we remove the peduncle, we peel it and we slice it. We put it in our steam basket with our carrot and potato.
The cooking of our vegetable will now start. In a pressure cooker, we can count 9 minutes under pressure. In a steam cooker, let’s count 14 minutes. Vegetables must be tenders. Go!
While it’s cooking, we will take care of our shrimps. We peel them, we remove all the hard parts : the head, the tail, the carapace and the legs.
Then we’ll lightly brown them on a hot frying pan for about 1 minute on each side over medium heat.
Once a little bit brown, we add the coconut milk, and the chopped coriander (previously washed and chiselled) and a little but of curry if you have decided to put some.
Leave on a low heat for about 4 minutes.
Once our vegetables are cooked, we place them in our blender with our olive oil and some cooking water. Let’s blend!
We will now mix coconut milk with coriander and curry, and we will cut our shrimps into very small pieces (if baby does not like the pieces, then we can mix everything together).
We mix our baby purée with our finely chopped shrimps, and our baby purée recipe : Carrot and tomato with shrimps, coconut milk, curry and coriander baby purée recipe (from 12 months) is now over!
Bon appetit baby 🙂
