Takes some time, but very easy to make. And also important almost no washing-up. ;-)
Taste very good. Though i like to ad some spices and seasoning. For example spread some horseradish onto the Salmon.

I cook this dish every week and it does not need anything changing or sauce added there is enough sauce with the balsamic vinegar. It is simple and tasty.

This is delicious...great for dinner parties. I found that using the larger asparagus better as the smaller cooks too quickly. Friends loved it!

I was excited to make this after all glowing reviews but neither myself nor my oh were overwhelmed. Everything was cooked well (followed the advice about not needing the asparagus is as long) and there was a surprising amount of sauce. I made a lemon mayonnaise to go with, perhaps that was what didn't quite work? Will make again as quick to prepare and reasonably healthy but have lowered expectations!

So easy to make and serve and lovely flavour. Made with our own new potatoes and cherry tomatoes, so even better.
Made this for a lunch with visiting holidaymakers.

I would recommend parboiling the potatoes for a few minutes, but otherwise this is a great recipe and perfect for mid-week meals.

Really nice dinner. Made it while watching a film last night as it is so low maintainence. I added a bit of rosemary to the potatoes and sprinkled it again on the salmon when I put that in, for fear that there wouldn't be enough flavour but I needed have worried. It was very tasty.

This has become one of my husband's favourites. Very easy to make and is quite versatile if you want to add anything different. I have added mushrooms, baby sweetcorn, yellow peppers and mange tout. Colourful and full of flavours!

This is a firm favourite in our house! It's so easy, all you need to do is add more things to the pot. I have started adding other veg too, anything I want to use up.

I found this recipe in the good food calendar - it's absolutely delicious! I ommited the tomatoes as I personally don't like them and it still worked perfectly. Balsamic vingear is a lovely touch!

Delicious apart from the potatoes which were still raw despite following the recipe to the letter - I even cut the big ones in half as suggested in the recipe!! May par-boil next time to be on the safe side! Also served with Delia's cheat hollandaise which was perfect as I think this dish does need some kind of sauce.

Agree with the Majority, this was really tasty and easy to do.
As I didnt have any basil leaves I put some pesto on top of the salmon and didnt use as much oil.
