This is the first recipe on here that i found really dissapointing. Followed the recipe 100%. It was very tasteless. Very surprised it got such high praise.

Loved the idea of only one pan and the meal was delicious but felt that the asparagas should be added nearer to the end of cooking time. Otherwise full marks.

I've made this dish several times now - it is really delicious - a firm favourite now!

Lovely recipe. Ideal for a one person, easy and healthy supper (half the recipe of course). I think my asparagus were far too thin to be roasted for 20/30 minutes though so trying again and leaving the asparagus until the salmon and tomatoes go in. Will make again!

I made this for a dinner party. It was so easy to prepare and it really went down well with everyone. Thanks!!

Really beautiful recipe! It has made salmon a spectatcular dish when previously I always thought it was a bit bland and uninteresting! The balsamic vinegar is also a star in this dish and an inspired addition!
