A great, easy recipe. Jazzed it up a bit with some spices and cayenne in the potatoes, then cooked the tomatoes, salmon and asparagus all at the same time. Delicious!

Great easy recipe.
I cooked the asparagus for 7 minutes though before adding tomatoes as it seemed way too long to roast them.

Perfect simple dinner. I used frozen salmon fillets and put them in the oven a bit earlier than the recipe said. Lovely!

Great easy dish, I first made for 6. Never any left. Healthy and filling too.

Sooooooooooo good! Easiest meal ever and even good enough to serve to guests! Used about 2 tbsps of balsamic vinegar. Served with garlic bread to mop up the juices. This will be my new go to weeknight dinner

Such a simple recipe but really tasty and went down very well with my family. I used ordinary tomatoes cut into quarters and followed others' advice and put the asparagus in at the same time as the fish and it was perfect. My daughter suggested adding courgettes next time which I think would be a nice variation. This will become a regular meal for us as it's very easy to put together during the week.

I make this quite often but when I add the asparagus I also add some samphire and beans. The samphire is so good with it. Sometime for the last 15 minutes I also add some curly kale so it goes crispy. Great versatile recipe.

I tried this as part of my campaign to do a new recipe every day this week,!
Absolutely loved it. After reading all the other comments, I put the asparagus in at the same time as the tomatoes and salmon. Didn't use any basil.
The portions were a little on the meagre side and might serve with a crusty roll to mop up the lovely juices.

Fabulous. Didn't have balsamic so used white wine vinegar. Didn't have basil, but put in good sprinkle of salt when salmon went in. Read previous reviews, so put asparagus in 5 mins later than recipe suggested and it was just right. Really nice, going straight into recipe book.

A very quick, easy & nutritious mid-week evening meal.

As others here have said, the asparagus was a little overdone so will add this with the tomatoes and salmon in future.

I followed this recipe to a T and it was perfect. Everything cooked perfectly. I used small red potatoes, and thicker asparagus so they wouldn't get soggy. I used a slab of Silver salmon about an inch and a half thick. It was great! Easy!

Bland and dry. Won't be making this again!

Very tasty and easy to make, and the portions were just right for the boyfriend and myself. I thought the asparagus was a bit overdone though, so I'll be adding it at the same time as the tomatoes and the fish next time I make this. As for seasoning, I sprinkled the fish with a bit of oregano and black pepper, and just a dash of salt at the end over the veggies.

This was really not worth the time. The taste was bland.

I cooked this for myself one evening, and it was so good I did something I've never done before - repeat it the following night for us both!

This recipe is so quick, simple and delicious. Might add the asparagus a bit later next time.

My husband loved this, so that's always a winner. It was so easy and so yummy - will definitely make this again (although next time I'll have to add an extra piece of Salmon as hubby wanted more!!)

I adapted the recipe a bit based on the comments and our previous try:
- add 1 clove garlic (crushed) with the potatoes;
- first put the potatoes in for 25 mins;
- then add both the tomatoes and asparagus at the same time for 15-20 mins;
- use 2 tbsp balsamic instead of 1;
- pan-fry the salmon separately for extra crispiness :)
Enjoy!

I read other comments first so did following -
Boiled potatoes first for 15 mins and added lots of seasoning to them
I also added chorizo and courgette at the asparagus stage.
I ended up cooking potatoes for 20, asparagus, courgette for 20 then added salmon and tomato for 20 ....
It was delicious! I chopped some of the tomatoes and kept some whole. I bought good quality ones on the vine.
I also seasoned salmon with lemon juice and black pepper.
Wonderful and very easy!
