I love it when a meal comes together like this one did!

I have mentioned before that one of my favorite ways to make Salmon is by roasting it. It just seems to come out so perfectly every time.

This recipe was one of my favorites that I have had in some time. The complexity of flavors in such an easy dish are sure to impress. It was ready in no time for a quick week night meal and is fancy and colorful enough for company.

The salmon is perfectly flavored and seasoned with a small amount of curry.

The tomatoes are sweet and juicy and really pair well with the substantial cauliflower and the caramelized red onion.  I have already considered making this combination of vegetables again in the very near future.

The textures are really great together and it was so pretty that I had a hard time choosing which pictures to post!


The heat is going to help with flavor and timing.
