Really beautiful recipe! It has made salmon a spectatcular dish when previously I always thought it was a bit bland and uninteresting! The balsamic vinegar is also a star in this dish and an inspired addition!

Fantastic meal, full of summer flavours.
Perhaps admin team could changes cooking time to 1 hour, rather then 1 min, could confuse some of the readers.

I made this tonight for my husband and 8yr old daughter. I substituted the salmon for chicken breasts. I put them in the pot with 25 minutes to go. I also put some green beans in the pot at the same time as the asparagus. We all enjoyed this meal and it is a bonus that there are very few dishes. Definitely be making this again.

Absolutely lovely and very easy. The tomatoes go really well with the salmon, but I would only add the asparagus for the last 10 minutes

This was fantastic. I crushed some peppercorns and put them on the Salmon, then soaked the fillets in the juice of half a lemon for about 10 minutes. Also added about half the juice to the bowl with the balsamic - it seemed to work well, the salmon was moist and juicy. Will be doing this again; the cherry tomatoes are an awesome touch.

I cooked this today, I added mushrooms, and half a courgette. Also we didn't have any new potatoes so did roasted instead. It was a delicious meal and will definitely have it again.

Made this when my two good friends came round and it turned out brilliantly. I don't cook because usually it all goes round! This was easy but effective. Looked and tasted fabulous!

The roasted asparagus, new potatoes and cherry tomatoes were really lovely with the flavour of balsamic vinegar and fresh basil, but I felt it was too difficult to get everything cooked perfectly timing-wise once the salmon was thrown into the mix. (I ended up overcooking the veg waiting for the salmon to cook through.) I would definitely serve it as a side dish again, but next time I would do the salmon separately.
