Nice but more seasoning is needed as in my opinion the recipe was too bland as it is.

Wonderful recipe. Good suggestion to top with a dollop of lemon mayo (i used Tartar thinned with juice of half a lime). Thanks.

This has become a regular in our house - so quick (and all in one dish) and easy but the flavours go together really well. Was doubtful about the basil but really lifts the dish.

This could become a Saturday evening favourite for us,quick, easy and delicious, but would use less oil next time and add the asparagus nearer the end

Super tasty recipe and just so so easy to impress when you have a few friends around. We added fennel to the the dish which worked really well. A great starter to go with this is the baked red pepper with baby tomatoes and anchovies with a dresed rocket salad. Great results for almost no effort. Got to be a winner!

I made it without the potatoes so as to cut down on the carbohydrates, but really liked it. Supereasy and fast!

Made this last night and it was such a hit .. will be doing it again and adapting it for seasonal veg as the year progresses.. would be lovely with butternut squash..

This is a lovely recipe but I thnik it would benefit from 2 things. Parboil the potatoes for 5 mins before roasting and the addition of some seasoning. No mention of salt or pepper. Otherwise lovely! And very easy, could easily be doubled up for more people.

Fantastic recipe! Incredibly easy, healthy, only one dish to wash, I've been making it while watching TV: just set the timer every time you need to throw in the oven the next ingredient. I tried it both with and without the vivegar and I prefer it without. It's fancy enough to serve for a dinner party too if you double the quantities and use your oven's large tray to bake everything.
Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

delish, so easy, great for an easy supper for 2 but special enough for entertaining - one of our favourites - but you do need a BIG dish if making it for more than two.

Wonderful, simple recipe and so easy to make. I used fresh pesto to drizzle over at the end rather than balsamic, and I also used fillets of hot-smoked salmon which heated through in the oven for 3 minutes or so. We, too, ate this with crusty bread and butter to mop up the delectable juices. This is destined to become a regular during the asparagus season

Made last night, loved it! One of the easiest and flavoursome meals i have made. Will definately be doing again. Doesnt really need to be served with anything but a nice bit of crusty bread and butter to soak up the sauce goes down well.

Fab - cooked it a few times now for myself & my husband who normally doesn't particularly enjoy fish. So easy, mess free and incredibly tasty. Deffo highly reccomend. Always add extra cherry tomatoes & apsaragus as extra calorie free filler!

This wsa delicious! Bought salmon to cook a spicy salmon recipe I had done previously When searching for the recipe found this one and by chance had also bought some reduced asparagus so it seemed meant to be!

I took account of comments made previously and added the asparagus about five minutes before the salmon and tomatoes, and was generous with the balsamic.

So easy, so delicious, and easy on the washing up!

Will definitely do this again and may even add basil next time (didn't have it in but the flavour didn't seem lacking because of this)

Try this - you won't be disappointed.
