Bland and dry. Won't be making this again!

Very tasty and easy to make, and the portions were just right for the boyfriend and myself. I thought the asparagus was a bit overdone though, so I'll be adding it at the same time as the tomatoes and the fish next time I make this. As for seasoning, I sprinkled the fish with a bit of oregano and black pepper, and just a dash of salt at the end over the veggies.

This was really not worth the time. The taste was bland.

I cooked this for myself one evening, and it was so good I did something I've never done before - repeat it the following night for us both!

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.
