Well guess smoking it is sort of cooking it, is it?

Anyway is this ok to eat ?

I was told by the midwife it's absolutely fine; but does count as one of your "big fish" portions; so don't eat lots of other tuna or salmon etc

Yes it's fine :-) enjoy! X

You can now eat Stilton and cooked goats cheese is fine as well! See NHS guidelines!

I just looked on nhs and it def says to avoid any blue veined cheese and mould ripened cheese such as camembert and goats cheese

It's soft veined blues that should be avoided, it specifically says that Stilton is ok and that cooking cheeses like Camembert kills any bugs.

you are not supposed to have veg pate anyway. I don't know why.
I think everything else on the list is ok

whiteandyellowiris Sun 12-May-13 19:15:00

do you think vegtable terrine is a type of veg pate?

Avoid any sort of pate or terrine. I have a friend who works in a path lab (checks samples) and apparently pates harbour listeria.

I ate smoked salmon all through pregnancy and it never even occured to me that it wasn't cooked. Oops.
