Oven-baked salmon with root vegetables

I didn’t grow up eating a lot of fish so for a long time I used to shy away from making it for my family. That was until my mother-in-law showed me how easy it actually is to prepare fish, especially if baked in the oven. I’ve since came to love lots of different fish dishes and like experimenting to make up my own.
This is a favorite in our house and a great dish for the colder season as it’s warm and tasty comfort food. Even our two little ones happily munch up a big portion whenever it is served. Our kids like to help mixing together the sauce and preparing the fish and other ingredients in the oven-proof dish.

Always choose organic fish to ensures that the fish you’re consuming comes from strong stocks and are fished or farmed sustainably. In Sweden, look out for KRAV and MSC labels. Avoid wild fished salmon from the Baltic sea as well as Vänern and Vättern lakes as those have shown to contain high levels of Dioxin and PCB, which especially children, expecting mothers and other women in their fertile age are very sensitive to.

Recipe tips
You can use any kind of root vegetables as your side – how about adding beetroot, parsnip, or turnip? You can mush up the dish with a fork for smaller eaters or even blend it in a food processor or with a hand blender for babies who are not yet used to eating textured food.
