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.

Tasty, fresh, light and really easy!!!! Can't fault it. We'll definitely be cooking this one again.

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!

totally delicious!

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.

Very good, very quick, very tasty! Great for midweek when time is short. Will definitely make again.

Delicious and easy to make. I added sliced red onion (after first 20 minutes, with asparagus). Will definitely make it again!

I had this for dinner last night and it was really tasty. I will definetly be making it again soon. I didnt change anything in the recipe but i did have a green salad with it. :-)

So easy and so tasty. The asparagus got overdone because my salmon was quite chunky so I'll put it in later next time. The potatoes are amazing with a mayo dip!

I believe the beauty of this dish is the simplicity and ease of making it. When eating I did have a problem with tomatoes exploding as they were cut and making a bit of a mess of the tablecloth. Overall I think a great spin on a roast, but admit it needed the addition of herbs whilst cooking to give the veg and potatoes a little more flavour.

Very easy to make, the balsamic vinegar compliments the vegetables surprisingly well. Might try it with chicken next time.
