A boatload of toppings gives this seafood treat a burst of flavor in every bite. It's topped with chopped veggies and a homemade vinaigrette that’s mouthwatering before it’s even cooked! —Wolfgang Hanau, West Palm Beach, Florida

"Yum, so good! Really enjoyed this dish. Hubby did too. Loved the flavors in this. I didn't serve it with pasta, but that would be good. I'll do that next time. Thanks!"

"I never had salmon before, my husband did. I had gotten some at a good price, and my husband picked this recipe. It was really very good, a nice recipe to introduce one self on eating salmon. Will make again. And will try some other salmon recipes."

"@deckanddeedee You can find the pasta recipe everyone is suggesting to pair with this here:

As far as THIS recipe is concerned (Med. Roasted Salmon), I used Tilapia Filets instead, for a healthier version. Yum!"

"what am I missing here? I do not see any Lemon-Feta Angel Hair in this recipe. How do you make it?"

"This was excellent - I also paired it with the Lemon-Feta Angel Hair and it is certainly a winning combination! We used flounder instead of the salmon - this would probably work well with any fish if you adjust the cooking time."

"My husband and I love salmon and I was looking for different ways to cook salmon. The vegetables, oil, etc are there in need to keep our health in good condition at once!"

"I like salmon; my husband doesn't. I was thrilled to make this and have him tell me that he actually really liked the sauce on it. I served it over the Lemon-Feta Angel Hair, as suggested in the magazine, and it was an excellent combination."
