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.

This was absolutely DELICIOUS! I love making salmon on the grill and have never really tried baking it before. Oh man it was just SOOOO tasty!!! I baked this exactly as written but I prefer my brussels sprouts more done so next time I will increase the baking time at least 5 minutes. Oh man the salmon!!! Read More

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 Read More

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

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. Read More

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

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 Read More

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 Read More

Fantastic one-dish meal! So tasty! Just made one substitution - I thought I had fresh oregano but it was thyme so I used that instead. I used all the garlic in the recipe and honestly the roasted cloves were so good I'd probably double the amount next time. We were practically fighting over them! I wouldn't skip the wine either - it added great flavor. Pros: Easy to prepare only one dish to clean Read More

Easy tasty healthy! This is one of the best easiest yummiest quickest recipes that I have tried in a while! Will definitely be making it over and over and over. Pros: 2 of our favorite foods Cons: uses a lot of garlic; kind of a pain to peel Read More

Easy and delicious! This is a keeper...have made twice now and both times it was a big hit. I perpared the oil with spices and sliced brussel sprouts in the morning. It was ready to pop in the oven as soon as it pre-heated. Pros: Easy squeezy! Read More

Easy and Delicious! We enjoyed this recipe very much! I followed the recipe exactly and it came out delicious. Don't worry about using all the garlic called for -- when you roast garlic it comes out sweet and very tasty not intense like raw garlic. Only issue was that it took longer to cook the salmon than it said in the recipe even at the high heat called for in the recipe but I had 6 oz pieces rather than 4 oz so that's understandable. Give this one a try -- you'll enjoy it! Pros: quick tasty easy to make very healthful Cons: cooking time was longer Read More

AMAZING FISH RECIPE! This. Was. Amazing. I don't like fish and agree with other reviewers that this was a great way to have fish without the super fishy taste you normally get from fish. I read reviews before cooking so only added 4 cloves of chopped garlic to the brussel sprouts instead of 12 (seems like so and!). I also had the oven at 400 instead of 450. I didn't end up using all of the sauce to drizzle over the fish as the recipe intended maybe added too much wine? But anyway it was great. The flavor of the brussel sprouts was perfect for the fish. My husband requested I make this again this week! Pros: easy good for those who don't like fish Read More

Very easy and extremely tasty! I deleted all the cloves of garlic with the brussel sprouts and just used the chopped garlic in the oil/wine sauce. Did not miss them! Serve with mashed butternut squash - nice touch of sweet to a very savory meal. Read More

This was a great tasting recipe the only problem was the oven temperature. My brussels sprouts set off the smoke alarm before the fish even went in the oven. I'd definitely make it again only reduce the heat. Otherwise it went over very well. Read More

Relatively quick and easy We used big salmon steaks and substituted dry martini for the pinot. The fish cooked great and the brussels sprouts roast just like in the photo. I thought the salmon needed more salt but I usually like saltier food. Pros: Simple ingredients simple steps Cons: May need more salt Read More

Excellent Thought this was a great recipe - used less garlic (because I was taking this to work for lunches) and it truned out fantastic. Excellent recipe for non-fish lovers who are adding salmon for health reasons. Pros: Quick simple few ingredients Cons: None that I can think of! Read More

Easy quick delicious This has two of my family's favorites - brussels sprouts and salmon and both go together wonderfully! The brussels sprouts sweeten up from the initial roasting and continued browning while the salmon cooks. The salmon cooks perfectly on top of the sprouts staying moist and absorbs the flavors of garlic and oregano. I adjusted the amount of garlic to my taste and it was still great! Pros: Very simple uses one pan Read More
