Roasting salmon on top of Brussels sprouts and garlic, flavored with wine and fresh oregano, is simple enough for a weeknight meal yet sophisticated enough to serve to company. Serve with whole-wheat couscous.

Making this a third time. Always enjoyed by all. I used Chadds Ford Spring Time white wine, perfect! Even worked with a bag of frozen Brussel Sprouts (all I could find). Defrosted , then cut them

I made the mistake of using 2 T dried oregano instead of fresh. It made for a very unpleasant dish....

SO good and easy. Made with Sauvignon Blanc, because I prefer to drink that. I also added about 2# of cubed potatoes (about 1/2" dice). They were a very nice addition.

A nice combination of flavors, very easy to make, and clean up is a cinch.

This was pretty awful. The wine was too much and the (sockeye) salmon had little flavor.

Family standby My 8 y-o son loves this! We also make the sprouts (follow recipe exactly except salmon) as a side for many other dishes...always goes fast! Pros: easy, fast, kid loves it Cons: people who are biased against sprouts

Delicious, easy all-in-one dish This is an easy, delicious dish. Simple and quick enough for a week night meal, yet sophisticated enough for company. The hardest part was skinning the salmon, I forgot to ask the butcher to do it! We're not brussel sprout fans, so we used yellow and green squash and potatoes instead, and it was perfect. I also don't cook with salt, so I used Mrs. Dash instead and everything was perfectly flavored. And the roasted garlic cloves give such a great taste to the veggies. The best part is you make everything in one dish. I served a nice mixed salad on the side with a feta vinaigrette and it was the perfect meal. Pros: Easy, quick, can easily substitute vegetables Cons: NULL

Excellent sophisticated yet simple dish My husband actually enjoyed Brussel sprouts with this combination. The flavors really complemented each other well. In the past, I sometimes found Brussel sprouts overpowering but not in this dish. Pros: One dish, Carmelized garlic balanced Brussel sprouts
