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.

Really lovely dish - for those suggesting its bland can I suggest extra balsamic & ensuring the tomatoes are cooked until there juiced run - I kept some whole % halfed others this added to the sauce I also used a lot of black pepper

Tried this recipe at the weekend. Read some of the comments before hand so added a small roughly chopped onion and a chopped garlic clove with the potatoes. I also seasoned and added a little more balsamic. The salmon was superb, as was the overall flavour. I added the asparagus at the same time as the tomatoes but it needed a bit longer so next time I will follow the recipe. Also, next time I will parboil the potatoes. This dish definitely gets the thumbs up!

This is the first recipe on here that i found really dissapointing. Followed the recipe 100%. It was very tasteless. Very surprised it got such high praise.

Loved the idea of only one pan and the meal was delicious but felt that the asparagas should be added nearer to the end of cooking time. Otherwise full marks.
