    I made this tonight and it turned out great. The tomato mixture was just tangy enough to cut the richness of the salmon. I didn't have polenta, but made the Balsamic and Grape Quinoa CL recipe. The boyfriend and I loved it :)

    Quick recipe to make during the week. Salmon as mentioned by others does take longer to cook than suggested. Tomato "salad' is a good topping to the salmon but more dressing could be used so it mixes with all of the polenta. Added a TBSP of butter to polenta to make it smoother and creamier

    This was really tasty. I have been trying to find a polenta recipe that wasn't too bland - this was it! The tomato vinaigrette over polenta was really good! This came together really fast too! Will make again.

    I had high hopes for this recipe but it just didn't come together well. The recipe never mentions when to remove the salmon skin so it was a real nuisance to try and get it off when it was done cooking. The salmon takes longer to cook than suggested and the polenta is made first so it sat and got hard. Needs tweaking.

    Made this last night exactly as written and it was wonderful. The polenta was creamy and the tangy tomato vinaigrette was a nice complement. And the fish was cooked to perfection. Will definitely make this again.

    Really good, fresh dish that I've made a couple of times. The first time I made it I served it on a plate with all of the components separate. Pretty good. The second time I served it in a shallow bowl and put don the polenta, then added the salmon and topped with the tomato vinaigrette. Awesome! It seems crazy that it would make a difference but serving in the bowl and layering the components really made a huge difference.
