    I absolutely loved this dish! Made me wonder why I pay to go out sometimes. I found that I needed about 3/4 c. more broth in risotto, but maybe only because I was cooking it a little hotter than I should have been. Added a bit more pepper to risotto. I will definitely be making this again and would HIGHLY recommend it!

    ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! BEST DISH I EVER MADE! I FOLLOWED THIS TO A "T"...HOWEVER I MADE 2 FILETS OF SALMON INSTEAD OF 6 SO I JUST USED 1 TSP OF OLIVE OIL TO COOK THE SALMON. Would be a WONDERFUL, beautiful dish for company!! Absolutely cannot wait to make this again!!

    WOW. This was delicious!! Added spinach to the risotto and used Ina Garten's recipe for roasted tomatoes. Everything was finished within 40 minutes and absolutely delicious. I will be making this for my dad on Father's Day.

    This was one of the best CL dishes I've ever made! The combination of roasted tomatoes, peppery arugula and salmon with fresh lemon thyme can't be beat! I used fat free 1/2 & 1/2 and a bit more Parmesan, and we grilled the salmon and used a torch to crisp the top. Absolutely fabulous!

    While this dish exceeded hub's 2-pan limit for cooking dinner, it was well worth it. Salmon was excellent. Risotto fussy as expected, but we added 1/4 c wild rice which bumped up the appearance & texture. Great leftover. Slow-roasted tomatoes are super-easy; we've made them a couple times - after they're done baking, turn off oven & let them sit until ready to serve.

    Had this last night and it was fantastic. I am not a salmon fan, so we used red snapper instead (was the freshest at the seafood counter). I didn't think the tomatoes added much (other than smoking up my house). Next time, I think we will actually smoke the tomatoes over cherry wood and see how that impacts the difference. Oh, also, I didn't have arugula or spinach so I used kale....it worked beautifully!

    This meal is delicious. The flavors come together perfectly, and any of the three parts would be great on its own. I used dried thyme instead of fresh and reduced the recipe to serve 4. I will definitely make this meal again.
