For the green beans, I always just opt for frozen ones. They’re simple enough to microwave whilst the salmon is in the oven.

Happy Thoughts of Things to Come

Folks. Thank you!

Judging by the page views, the comments and the general reaction overall to my last couple of recipes, the Scottish bran scones recipe and the simple spiced carrot soup, you liked them a lot and that makes me thrilled!

Thinking out loud now, with thoughts of the weekend to come, what are you guys up to?

Lady Lynne and I are catching up Luke and Erin on Saturday afternoon and trying out a new local eatery, Black Dove. None of us have been there before but the reviews, pictures and menu, look and sound fantastic.

It’ll be great to catch up and hear all about Erin’s endeavours as she continues with setting up her “bridal boot camp” business. And, to hear how Luke’s knee is, after we last saw them at the Great Glasgow Run!

Oh and not to mention having a few glasses of the red stuff…..  😉

Then, dare I mention the “C” word again? But, I’m planning to photograph an amazing chocolaty Christmas recipe for you on Sunday.

Sorry to have to mention Christmas again, but, ach well, I’m sure you’re already being bombarded with it wherever you go.

As for you, my American friends, well you’ve got Thanksgiving Day even sooner than that! 😮

However, there’s a reason for my madness. I need to get my Christmas recipes done now, as it’s just under 3 weeks before our BIG HOLIDAY, Gorilla trekking in Uganda (SO EXCITED), then some well needed R&R in Zanzibar. So we’re nearly away most of December!

I don’t want to have nothing to publish for you in December, or to miss out on all the Christmas recipes, so hence my forward planning for December.

Then there’s the plans for Vegan January.

You what Neil?

Yep, Vegan January. That’s me officially announced it. Lynne and I are going all vegan, just for the month though. This was Lynne’s idea so blame her. 😉

And as for February…….. ha ha ha….

No seriously, there’s no plans for February. It’ll be back to more of what you would normally expect here at Neil’s Healthy Meals.

Right, I’ve rattled on enough. So, have an amazing weekend folks, I’ll catch up with you next week.

What’s your thoughts on the salmon recipe?

And Christmas? (Ha ha I couldn’t resist mentioning it again).

  1. This just goes to show that you can have a healthy and delicious meal in under 30 minutes! I love the crust for this, something I wouldn’t have thought about myself.

      Thanks Dannii, yeah I just thought it would be nice to have something other than cream cheese on top, and it does make a tasty difference. 🙂

  2. Oooo i bet the crunch of the oat bran adds the perfect amount of pizazz!

      Thanks Natalie, yep just a little something difference on top here and it makes all the difference! 😀

  3. Excuse me did you say vegan? I could do vegetarian, but vegan is a no go. For reasons such as the one that you are giving above ie salmon yum

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      I know Suz, can you believe it? But it’s only for January. Lynne just wanted to do it as a challenge, and after much persuasion I reluctantly agreed.

      I don’t know how I’m going to cope not eating healthy, yummy staples like this, for the whole month of January. But you know I’m sure we’ll do it. Somehow! 🙂


  4. Salmon is my happy food. My bestie… BUT… Cream cheese… NOT so much! LOL!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Ah, sorry about that GiGi. I think we could miss out the cream cheese here, up the garlic, mix the oat bran, garlic, parmesan and parsley together and make a nice oat bran crust for you?

      How does that sound? 😀

  5. I make something similar to this but without the cream cheese, what a great idea! I can’t wait to try it this way!

      Hi Stephanie, thanks for the comment.

      I’m glad you liked this and I hope you and your family enjoy it as much as Lynne and I do. 🙂

  6. Neil – my daughter and I love salmon for a quick weeknight meal – but duuuuuude – how brilliant is this to coat it with cream cheese?!?! I’ve never tried doing that before and cannot wait to give that a go – need to get me some salmon tonight!
    Hope you and Lynne have a wonderful weekend catching up with friends over that “Red stuff”! Looking forward to those Christmas recipes – in my book – it’s never to early to start talking about Christmas!

      I’m so delighted that I’ve inspired you to get some salmon and coat it with cream cheese Shashi. 😀

      It really is a super simple thing to do with your salmon and we often have it like this, in this recipe, or with cream cheese and other variation toppings too! 🙂

      Hope you have a fantastic thanksgiving together with your daughter. No it’s never too early to start Christmas I think, either. It’s just such a great time of the year eh? 😉
