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.

Easy to prepare but I wouldn't cook the asparagus for quite as long and I'm not sure that the tomatoes added anything but colour to the dish. I thought that the flavour lacked a little something even though I used the best ingredients . I will try making it again but without the tomatoes and using a little chorizo and some chopped peppers.

Very average needs stronger flavours

We really enjoyed the flavour combination and so simplistic. Needs seasoning which isn't mentioned and the asparagus don't need as long as indicated unless you have very fat ones! I added a little bit more balasamic too, to prevent the veg drying out. Will certainly eat it again

Lovely, easy Valentines dish. Forgot the basil (too many cocktails!) but still came out a treat.

Quality meal, and very very easy to make. I sprinkled a bit of mixed herbs in with the olive oil and a bit of fish seasoning...quality

Lovely. Really delicious. I was a bit more liberal with the balsamic than the recipe states, as we love it!
