It definitely does not need to cook as long as stated, I added the asparagus, tomatoes and salmon at the same time, with a bit extra oil and balsamic. A delicious meal that has become a favourite.

I made this for a healthy Friday night supper and added peppers and mushrooms in with the tomatoes. It was delicious! don't be afraid of splashing on the vinegar and the olive oil to stop the extra ingredients drying up!

oops - forgot stars!

A lovely easy dinner - although I agree that the tomatoes and asparagus definitely don't need that long to cook. I did them for 20mins and they were still a little on the caramelised side :-)
The potatoes were a little dry so I may trp a lemon butter sauce on the side next time.
Definitely will be cooking this again!

Really great recipe, I added mint instead of basil at the same time as the salmon, with a few dashes of lime juice and some caramelised red onion chutney with balsamic and a bit of sherry vinegar with a pinch of sugar. I served it with crushed minted peas. Perfect meal!

Very tasty and extremely easy to make. Impressed my husband too, and that's not easy to do with a fish dish. Have made a few times, also with variations, such as adding peppers. Would cook this for friends too.

sorry forgot the stars!!!

If you love salmon & asparagus do try this as it is sheer heaven!
Really simple & quick to make but very impressive and it tastes amazing. I added a handful of black & green olives for a more Mediteranean slant & the juice of half a lime added a little tartness which complemented the salmion perfectly.
Served as it was with a side salad of mixed rocket & watercress it was a lovely Saturday night meal for 2 which earned lots of brownie points! Serving it for friends next weekend as it is so impressive with so little effort!

Lovely! I served mine with a lemon and parsley sauce and added broccoli.

We tried this last night and is was very tasty. We added a quartered red onion to the potatoes but did not have any basil so that was omitted. Nevertheless this will be a regular addition to our weekly meals.

Excellent recipe - easy to make and delicious tasting. Will be added to my repertoire of regular recipes

Great! Very simple to do and tasty. I added courgettes with the asparagus and served with cauliflower cheese. Not much washing up to do either so rather happy with this recipe!

This is such an easy dinner to make. It is also very healthy and tasty. I use fry light instead of the oil as I am on slimming world, but it still takes fantastic.

ps need to change the cooking time on the recipe. 1 min is not near enough when you read the recipe. Oopps

Loved this. Might reduce the timing when the asparagus and tomatos go in as they were too well done for us even though my asparagus was chunky. Will definitely make this again and tweak it to suit us.

Quick and easy to make and very tasty, I used broccoli instead of asparagus and I also added a couple of garlic cloves in their skins with the potatoes to give extra flavour.

Clean plates and dish so this must have been good, plus no moaning about who was doing the washing up. Great for a mid week meal, but it is not something I would serve for a dinner party, as a bit too simple :O)

Quick easy meal, made after work with minimum fuss. Tasted so lovely and summery. Had it with some crusty bread to mop up all the gooey roast tomato/ vinegar juices. Delicious!
