You can’t beat a recipe passed down from your elders. You know it works, you know it’s tasty, and you know it’s most probably going to impress. Well, this one was no different!

Whilst at home a little while ago, my Nanny told me about a new salmon recipe she’d been making quite often – Salmon baked with low fat cream cheese and plum tomatoes. It sounded fab and so I had to give it a go.

Baked Salmon with Cream Cheese & Plum Tomatoes

It’s super simple and easy, doesn’t take long to cook, yet it’s delicious and nutritious, making it a perfect mid-week meal. What’s more, it’s only a few ingredients – don’t you just love those recipes which need five ingredients or less?

It’s great served with cous cous and vegetables, but would be just as good with salad, or crushed new potatoes.

I made it for Alex last week, and he was seriously impressed. He doesn’t usually eat tomatoes, and turned his nose up when I passed him his plate, but said he’d try it for me. Next minute, he was saying he might have even enjoyed it with more tomato!! Can you believe it?!

You have to give this a go! It’s now a go to recipe for mid-week when I have limited time to whip something up after the gym 🙂

What’s your favourite mid-week meal right now?
