Miss out the oat bran if you don’t have it or maybe even try some other herb combinations like chives?
The choice is yours.!
There’s just so many versatile things you can do with a salmon fillet.
But, keeping to the theme here, I’m thinking you’re like Lady Lynne and I, you’re knackered after a day at work.
So let’s leave the fancy shmancy stuff to the weekend and just keep this simple, as an oven baked salmon recipe.
Coat it in some tasty cream cheese, give yourself a fibre boost with the oat bran, add a tanginess with the lemon and finally a nutty sweetness with the parmesan.
Et voila! That’s it. Simple!
- 2 x 150g boneless salmon fillets
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tbsp reduced fat soft cream cheese
- 1 clove garlic crushed
- 1 tbsp freshly grated lemon rind
- 1 tbsp oat bran
- 1 tbsp freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp chopped curly parsley
- Pre-heat oven to 200C fan.
- Season the salmon fillets all over with the freshly ground salt and pepper.
- Lightly grease a baking tray and place the seasoned salmon fillets on the tray.
- In a bowl mix together the cream cheese, garlic, and lemon rind.
- In a separate bowl mix together the oat bran and parmesan.
- Spread the cream cheese mixture over the top of the salmon fillets and sprinkle with the lemon juice.
- Sprinkle the oat bran and parmesan mixture over the top of the cream cheese and lightly press this into the cream cheese, using your fingers.
- Bake in the centre of an oven for 15 - 18 minutes until the salmon is cooked.
- Garnish with the parsley
- Serve with new baby potatoes and green beans.
If you’re making this oven baked salmon recipe as suggested, with the baby potatoes and green beans, then get your potatoes on the stove first before starting the salmon prep.
For the green beans, I always just opt for frozen ones. They’re simple enough to microwave whilst the salmon is in the oven.
You’ll still be able to get this whole meal ready in just 30 minutes with the baby potatoes and green beans. I know I’ve timed it!
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).
