We didn't change much on this recipe and liked it a lot. I did use lemon pepper when seasoning the potatoes and asparagus. I didn't really like the bell pepper in the relish; I ended-up using the liquid to pour over the salmon (which was a whole fillet) before baking. It really had a wonderful flavor and really enjoyed it. Don't know why the bell peppers didn't agree with me...I really do like them a lot. I'll likely make this again in the same manner. Thanks for a great recipe!

This couldn't be easier and my dh said "this is the best salmon we've had in a long time"--great dish. The change I made was instead of making the relish, I made the relish ingredients minus the bell pepper and basted the salmon with it--wonderful and we also loved the potatoes and asparagus combo. Thanks for sharing this keeper which we will be having again in the Spring!
