  1. To make the garlic crumbs, roughly tear into chunks and pulse for a few seconds in a food processor until you have rough breadcrumbs, with some small and some larger pieces.

  2. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of the oil. Tip in the crumbs and add the chilli if using. Fry for 2-3 minutes until crisp and golden, stirring frequently, adding a little more oil if they are looking too dry. Add the crushed garlic, season with freshly ground black pepper and stir well to mix. Fry for a further minute then tip into a bowl and set aside.

  3. Cook the tagliatelle according to the packet instructions. About 3 minutes before its due to be cooked, drop in the Tenderstem® broccoli. Once all cooked, drain well and tip back into the pan.

  4. Stir through the smoked salmon, crème fraiche and chives until evenly mixed, warming over a low heat as you do so. Season to taste with pepper and serve in warmed bowls.

  5. Pass the garlic crumbs around separately for people to add themselves.
