Absolutely lovely and very easy. The tomatoes go really well with the salmon, but I would only add the asparagus for the last 10 minutes

This was fantastic. I crushed some peppercorns and put them on the Salmon, then soaked the fillets in the juice of half a lemon for about 10 minutes. Also added about half the juice to the bowl with the balsamic - it seemed to work well, the salmon was moist and juicy. Will be doing this again; the cherry tomatoes are an awesome touch.

I cooked this today, I added mushrooms, and half a courgette. Also we didn't have any new potatoes so did roasted instead. It was a delicious meal and will definitely have it again.

Made this when my two good friends came round and it turned out brilliantly. I don't cook because usually it all goes round! This was easy but effective. Looked and tasted fabulous!
