Back with another incredible recipe that you, your toddler, your older children and anyone else in your life would LOVE! Herby Salmon Cakes are going to start making a weekly appearance - TRUST ME!
If you tune into Instagram stories on a frequent basis, you know my daughter has a LOVE for food. The girl is down to try just about anything. She's been on the salmon train since she started solids back around 7-8 months and we're going strong. These Salmon Cakes are a fantastic lunch, dinner or quick snack if you're looking for extra protein. If you're looking for more toddler-friendly meals, you have to make my simple and tasty Zucchini Feta Frittatas. Love!
I'm all about exposing babies / toddlers to lots of flavor up front - so don't shy away from the herbs. Just chop them up small so they don't feel funny in a toddlers mouth if that's a concern.
I serve these alongside a big heaping spoonful of guacamole or pesto so Poppy can learn how to dip her food in a condiment. Go ahead and make a double batch because I can guarantee that you'll be wanting to eat these too!
