Absolutely gorgeous! I added some red onion at the asparagus stage and it was lovely and sweet at the end. I would double or treble this and do for a dinner party, just superb.
I added a sprinkle of salt as I think it needed it, and when I served it I added some horseradish on the side which added a lively kick.

Really enjoyed this dish, although I cut the cooking time down. I cooked the potatoes for 20 mins, then added everything else for 15 mins. Tasty.

A beautiful summery one-pan fish dish that is so simple to prepare. Just throw everything in the pan at stages and you have a lovely healthy dish at the end of the 50 mins cooking time (not 1 min as stated!). Wish I'd added courgettes as per comments below - I had a couple to use up!!

Delicious. Seasoning the potatoes well is a good idea. Plus, cook the asparagus and tomatoes at the same time.

Made a change from my usual ways of serving salmon, and very easy. I added an uncrushed clove of garlic and seasoning to the new potatoes. My son thought looked this looked like a restaurant cooked meal! Served with a side salad. Will make again, maybe using courgettes and peppers when asparagus is no longer in season

This is an insanely delicious recipe, now made for the second time. I used lots of ground black pepper and salt. For the oil I used one tablespoon of garlic-infused olived oil to roast the potatoes, and then a tablespoon of basil-infused oil to drizzle over the fish. Really good recipe, definitely a keeper!

Just made this for an easy Saturday night meal. Yumma. Listening too other comments I reduced cooking time of asparagus + tomatoes. Didn't have any basil so added rosemary to potatoes before adding salmon. Also added 2 tablespoons of Balsamic.

Great dish. I used canned cherry tomatoes to give abit of extra sauce.

I cooked the potatoes for 20 mins in garlic oil, then added fat asparagus and 2 inches of chopped chorizo for 10 mins. Seasoned salmon with black pepper and lemon juice whilst waiting for timer. 10 minutes more for salmon and toms to cook. Salmon was over cooked but delicious!

I've made this several times when friends/family have been coming to eat with us. A great success - delicious, easy AND stress free!

Yum-tastic!
The recipe didn't call for seasoning but next time I'll add both salt and pepper, especially to the potatoes.
The amounts are modest so this meal would be good for dieting or adding a starter and dessert to. Alternatively you can increase the portion sizes which I'll do next time.
It's a real low maintenance meal so good if you're busy.
Delicious!

Very quick and easy although timing is important I started to burn my salmon so i wrapped it in tin foil and it was fine, definitely will make it again.
