Salmon and Butternut Squash

Salmon and Butternut Squash

The cookbook (see previous post) mentions to serve at least one portion of meat (best dark meat) once a day.  The words “at least” hit me.  Honestly, I usually don’t give Caleb more than one portion meat a day. He has one egg for one meal and some kind of meat for another meal.  I consider egg as “meat”. He has meat more than once a day sometimes when we go out and he nipples on our food.  Anyways, I was hoping to achieve two meals with meat a day.  Ideally, I want one meal with fish and another meal with pork, beef, or chicken.  Besides the salmon cakes (see previous post), I need to explore more ways to make fish. I just thought Caleb likes butternut squash because of its sweetness. Why not mix them together with some shredded salmon? 

1-1/2 cup soup stock (see post on Chinese Style Soft Cooked Rice)
1/4 cup butternut squash
1/8 cup cooked salmon (I steam it, then de-bone and shred the cooked fish by hand)

Cook butternut squash with soup stock until tender and mash with a wooden spoon. Cook until thicken. Add salmon and stir. Add butter and stir.
