  1. Make the dressing by whisking together the rapeseed oil and lemon juice to taste. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Set aside.

  2. Steam or boil the Tenderstem® broccoli for 3-4 minutes until just tender but with a little bite.

  3. While the Tenderstem® broccoli is cooking, toast the seeds by tipping them into a small frying pan. Add the soy sauce and cook over a medium heat, tossing regularly to coat all over, for about 3 minutes until the seeds are crisp and golden. Take care not to burn them or they will taste bitter.

  4. Arrange the cooked Tenderstem® broccoli on a plate, top with the smoked salmon slices. Drizzle over the dressing and sprinkle over the toasted seeds and chives. Serve immediately.
