Tips and Suggestions

To make an adult meal set aside the baby portion and to the remainder add 150g cooked pasta.


1. Poach the fish filling a saucepan with water. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, add the fish and simmer for 5 minutes.

2. In another saucepan, melt the butter and add the leek. Cook over a low heat until soft. Add the courgette and carrot and cook for 5 minutes, until soft.

3. Add the tomatoes and cook for a further 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir through the cheese until melted.

4. Carefully flake the fish, checking for bones. Stir into the cheesy sauce and serve.
