A while ago I found this recipe on the internet after watching “Let’s do lunch with Gino and Mel” .

For some of you, my wonderful followers, who does not know who Gino and Mel are :

Gino D’Acampo is a celebrity chef in UK, very italian, very funny and delightful to watch;

Melanie Sykes is a UK TV Presenter and Model, beautiful woman, very natural, down to earth and also very funny.

Personally, I think that  thid recipe is genious: just a little preparation, not many ingredients, but the final result is fabulous!
And all this just in 25 minutes!
See for yourself:
You need:    salmon fillets
                            white bread
                            fresh thyme ( I prefer lemon thyme)
                            zest from 1 lemon
                            cream cheese ( like Philadelphia or any other soft spreadable unsweetened cream cheese)

Pre-heat oven to 180 °C, 350 °F, Gas Mark 4. Place the bread in a food processor and blend into fine breadcrumbs. Blitz  in  lemon zest.

Spread the fillets with cream cheese

Spread the salmon fillets with a layer of cream cheese and place on a lightly oiled baking tray. Top with the flavoured breadcrumbs, lightly pressing them into the cream cheese.


Roast in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes or until cooked.


Serve the salmon with new potatoes ( or mash) and some green veggies or on the bed of  a green salad.
