Baked fish in a package

This recipe is suitable for babies : 9 - 12 months. 

Fish is easy to cook. I made Baked fish for my son, wrapped in parchment paper and baked it in the oven.

Makes 2 portions

a little olive oil for greasing
2 skinless fillets of flounders
1/2 tsp finely chopped snipped chives
1 slice lemon
a pat of butter
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 tbsp frozen peas
2 tbsp creme fraiche or heavy cream
1-2 tbsp milk (optional)
2 tsp grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400*F. Lightly grease a piece of parchment paper with oil and put the fish in the center. Season a little with salt & pepper ( if using) and sprinkle with the chives. Lay the slice of lemon on the fish and fold the parchment to form a package (fastened with paper clips if necessary) Bake for 8 minutes, or until the fish is tender.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan and saute the scallion for 1-2 minutes, until soft. Add the peas and cook for 1 minute, then add the creme fraiche or cream and cook, stirring for 1-2 minutes, until the peas are cooked.

Open up the parchment and discard the lemon. Transfer the fish to a plate and pour the remaining juices into the saucepan. Stir the sauce and add 1-2tsp of milk, if needed, to take slightly thinner. Season to taste with salt and pepper ( from 1 year)

For smaller babies, the fish, peas and sauce can be mashed or pureed. Also, stir 1 tsp grated parmesan into the sauce instead salt or pepper.
Serve with rice or boiled baby potatoes.
