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

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

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

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

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!

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
