This recipe is so quick, simple and delicious. Might add the asparagus a bit later next time.

My husband loved this, so that's always a winner. It was so easy and so yummy - will definitely make this again (although next time I'll have to add an extra piece of Salmon as hubby wanted more!!)

I made this for the family and everyone loved it. I added fingers of courgettes and shallots. Thought the asparagus was a little overdone, so would add it a bit later next time.

This is a great and very easy recipe. Made this for lunch and it was absolutely heavenly. I used chopped salad tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes as I didn't have any cherry tomatoes. I added 3 tbsp of olive oil instead of 2. I also added salt, pepper, oregano and mixed herbs. Delicious!

Made this for dinner this evening and thoroughly enjoyed it, as did hubby who can be a fussy eater. I added a few chunky carrots with peeled potatoes in wedges as I didn't have new potatoes, the timing was perfect as everything was cooked to perfection. Will definitely do this one again, thanks for sharing :-)

I seasoned the potatoes with garlic, salt and pepper and added a chopped courgette at the same time as the asparagus which worked very well. I also squeezed 1/4 of a lemon when adding the salmon and cooked 1/4 lemon between the pieces of salmon which I squeezed over before serving. I was very generous with the balsamic and my other half also added a splash of soya sauce. It was yummy and excellent for a novice like me. Will be making again.
