Salmon wrap with sweet potato puree

This tasty salmon wrap with sweet potato puree is perfect for breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner or as an evening snack, particularly for women who are breastfeeding. It is great to have small pieces ready in the fridge at home or bring them on a walk. Cut the wrap into pieces and place in a lunch box and have them ready when you get hungry. Do you have fish leftover from yesterday? That’s perfect for the wrap. The recipe is for 2 servings and 4 wraps – and it contains several important nutrients for breastfeeding women. When you breastfeed, you need omega-3, iron, vitamin B12 and more and you get this from fish and spinach. A simple and good meal to be eaten when you have time or feel peckish.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tortilla wraps
  • 4 salmon fillets
  • salt
  • pepper
  • fresh spinach
  • ½ red onion

Purée:

  • ½ large sweet potato
  • 1 garlic clove
  • salt
  • pepper

Method:

  1. Peel and dice the sweet potato, boil in water until cooked through (10-15 min). Drain the water and let rest.
  2. Preheat oven to 200ºC. Place the fish fillets in an ovenproof dish, season with salt and pepper and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Take out and let rest.
  3. Puree the sweet potato with garlic, salt and pepper in a blender or food processor.
  4. Assemble the wrap: place the tortilla wraps on a work surface and spread the sweet potato puree over the whole tortilla. Then distribute spinach, red onion and salmon in the wrap. Roll together firmly to make sure they stay rolled up.
  5. Eat as they are or cut them into pieces and place them in a food container. Remember to put some fruit or vegetables in the food container so you don’t forget to eat your greens.
