  • ½ cauliflower
  • 1 broccoli
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1 tomato
  • ½ bag rocket


  • 1½ Tbsp dill
  • 25g capers
  • 150g natural yoghurt


  • 1½ Tbsp dill
  • 25g capers
  • 500g salmon fillet
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 230ºC. Line an oven tray (with a lip) with baking paper.
  2. Cut cauliflower and broccoli into small florets and finely dice stalks. Toss on prepared tray with oil and water. Season and roast for about 10 minutes.
  3. Finely chop both measures of dill and capers. Set half aside and place other half in a small bowl with yoghurt. Mix to combine, season to taste and set aside.
  4. Pat salmon dry and remove any pin bones. Cut lengthways into four pieces and season.
  5. When veggies have roasted for 10 minutes, remove tray from oven, push veggies to one side and make a space for salmon. Place salmon on tray (skin side down), spread the top of each fillet with mustard, then sprinkle over reserved dill and caper mix, pressing down to adhere.
  6. Return tray to oven and roast a further 6-7 minutes until vegetables are tender and salmon is just cooked through.
  7. Dice tomato 1cm. When salmon and veggies are cooked, remove skin from salmon and discard. Toss tomato and rocket through veggies and season to taste.
  8. To serve, divide roast vegetables, tomato and rocket between plates. Top with salmon and dollop over dill caper yoghurt.
