Gorgeous, easy and healthy - I will use this recipe again as a mid-week meal.

I doubled this recipe up and then added a bit extra for five - but found allowing 200g of potatoes was rather too generous for five female appetites!

Just made this, was looking forward to it - thought it sounded very nice and had lots of good reviews but was slightly dissapointed. Seemed to lack flavour despite the balsamic and basil. Was certainly easy to make and was not unpleasant but don't think I'll be making it again.

Lovely, though I thought it was a little dry so must find some way of resolving this.

Cooked this exactly as stated and absolutely loved it. Stuck to the quantities, didn't have any side dishes or extra and found it to be really filling! TasTed healthy but very satisfying. We will definately be having this again soon.

Excellent - especially as my guests were very late: you can start it as soon as they arrive and then just keep adding the bits as you're eating a starter.

Loved this. Very easy. First time I made as directed and it was great. Next time I used sweet potatoes and courgettes and prefer them!

This recipe is amazing , infact I am making it as I type and I know it will be as delicious as it always is . I like to add a few boiled eggs and some sugar snaps, just for a bit extra. And it always goes down a storm in my house .

I have made this so many times now it's just not even funny! It's so simple, tasty and impressive and I LOVE the fact that it's all done in one pan. One pan = very little dishes!! yay!

I really loved this dish so easy to prepare and cook . however the male members would have preferred something with a stonger flavour

Fab recipe! I added some lemon wedges in the pot and topped the salmon with pesto to give it some zing.

I added some garlic to the spuds which I think it needed and I also used up a few mushrooms that I had lurking in the fridge but the basic recipe is beautiful without much tweaking.

We also had ours with 2 side dishes of fresh runner beans with grated parmesan and also half a chopped avocado with a squeeze of fresh lemon.

The Balsamic Vinegar in this dish works incredibly well at bringing out all of the gorgeous flavours

It was absolutely divine and one that I shall be cooking a lot over the summer!

This is a delicious dish. The richness of the salmon (or ocean trout - which is equally good) is balanced very well by the cherry tomatoes and balsamic vinegar and having the whole meal cooked in one dish is fabulous! Wouldn't change a thing.

What a great dish! I don't like any sort of vinegar so swapped it for lemon juice and increased the amount to 3tbsp. Thanks to those who suggested cooking the aparagus for less time,I think 30mins would have been too long. Have also tried it with garlic and yellow pepper added and served it with tenderstem broccolli or crusty bread to mop up the lemony juices Give it a try it's delicious!!
