Just made this for an easy Saturday night meal. Yumma. Listening too other comments I reduced cooking time of asparagus + tomatoes. Didn't have any basil so added rosemary to potatoes before adding salmon. Also added 2 tablespoons of Balsamic.

Great dish. I used canned cherry tomatoes to give abit of extra sauce.

I cooked the potatoes for 20 mins in garlic oil, then added fat asparagus and 2 inches of chopped chorizo for 10 mins. Seasoned salmon with black pepper and lemon juice whilst waiting for timer. 10 minutes more for salmon and toms to cook. Salmon was over cooked but delicious!

I've made this several times when friends/family have been coming to eat with us. A great success - delicious, easy AND stress free!

Yum-tastic! The recipe didn't call for seasoning but next time I'll add both salt and pepper, especially to the potatoes. The amounts are modest so this meal would be good for dieting or adding a starter and dessert to. Alternatively you can increase the portion sizes which I'll do next time. It's a real low maintenance meal so good if you're busy. Delicious!

Very quick and easy although timing is important I started to burn my salmon so i wrapped it in tin foil and it was fine, definitely will make it again.
