Hello. I bought some cod fillets today as they were reduced in tesco. Me and DH wouldnt eat it, but I was planning to cook, blend and freeze for DD as she doesnt have any fish at the mo. However, I just read the pack when reading how to cook...and it has the bones and skin.
I am not really a fish person so I have no idea what to do with them. How do I get the bones out?
The 'Birth to Five' book recommends giving one or two servings of meat, fish, egg, tofu or pulses a day. It's in the 'Giving More Solids' bit, they must be talking about babies aged 6-9mths as 9-12mths comes later in the chapter.
cod fillets don't have big pieces of bone but may have little spiky bits that you need to remove. When cooked you will find that it flakes quite easily and in doing so you will be able to remove these bones. If you are just doing it for your dd i would first steam it and then cut into small dd size portions (1 inch cubed or thereabouts). Leave one out and put the rest in the freezer. Serve by flaking into onto her feeding tray or plastic plate.
