Fish Recipes for Older Babies
Your baby is getting older, maybe she is 10 or 11 months old now. You’re tired of the same old boring purées and want to branch out into more adventurous baby cuisine. Baby Food doesn’t always have to be fruit purées or purées of veggies and meats. We are posting Fish Yummy Recipes that may be used for Baby “Meals”. These Fish “baby” recipes are recipes for Fish that the whole family may enjoy and eat.
These Fish Baby Meal recipes should all be suitable for those non-allergic babies who are 10 months of age and over. Please note however that some ingredients may not be suitable for a baby under 12 months of age. Use your discretion to substitute ingredients in the Baby Meal Recipes as needed. We have included our own substitutions when we were making baby food for our “older” babies” Items with a** beside the recipe ingredient indicates the ingredient may need substituting.
ALWAYS consult your pediatrician before introducing new “older” foods that you may be unsure of.
J&J’s Easy Peasy Baked Cod That is Always Eaten (Ok, so they think that it’s chicken.)
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon ground dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon basil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons garlic powder (or just shake the container until you are happy with the amount – we use 4 shakes.)
4 Cod fillets – medium to small sized, washed and cleaned of course
1/2 cup butter, melted
In a small bowl, combine the milk and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, thyme, basil, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder . Dip the haddock fillets in the milk, (we prefer milk over egg because we like the coating to gently fall off and create a nice crunchy “topping” to sprinkle over when the fish is finished baking.).
Coat the Cod with the Bread Crumb mix. Place Cod fillets in a
glass baking dish, and drizzle with melted butter.
Bake at 400, on the top rack of the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily, about 15-25minutes. Keep a good watch and remove from oven once you see the fish flaky.
Cheesy Fish Topping
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
2 shakes of Hot Sauce
1/2 cup of butter (as much as we try to use Olive Oil for this, it’s just not tasty and really is downright yucky, use the butter.)
pepper, basil, garlic powder or minced garlic
Toss all ingredients into a bowl and mix. The mixture will be thick yet fluffy. Spread mixture over Cod, Haddock, Tilapia, Flounder (add lemon juice for the flounder.) or even orange roughy (we prefer to prepare orange roughy a different way but it does work with orange roughy).
Rough Flounder Tilapia Italiano
1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons grated Romano cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon basil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 pound flounder, orange-roughy, or tilapia fillets (now you understand the title – we love to use Flounder for this recipe)
1/4 cup butter, melted
Lightly olive oil a medium baking pan. In a shallow bowl, mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Romano cheese, garlic powder,basil, pepper, paprika and salt.
Brush both sides of the fillets with butter, and coat with the bread crumb mixture. Arrange fillets in a single layer in the prepared baking dish, and squeeze lemon juice over them.
Bake at 400 degrees in preheated oven 10 to 15 minutes, or until the fish gets flaky.
1/2 cup olive oil and 1/2 vegetable oil for frying

1/3 cup milk
