  1. Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F. Cut the potatoes into slices, then place in a colander and rinse off any excess starch. Place in a tea towel and dry well. Trim the asparagus spears.  
  2. Line a baking tin with tin foil. Scatter over the potato slices and drizzle with the half the oil. Season with salt (optional) and pepper, then sprinkle the garlic on top. Mix until evenly combined and bake for 9 minutes. 
  3. Remove the tin from the oven and turn the potatoes over. Make space for the salmon fillets, season the fillets with salt (optional) and pepper and nestle in the cherry tomatoes. Drizzle with a little more of the oil and roast for another 5 minutes.
