Step 1

Preheat oven to 200°C. Spread pumpkin on a lined baking tray, spray olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 30 mins.

Step 2

Meanwhile, place the sourdough slices in a food processer or blender and blitz on high to form chunky breadcrumbs. Place in a bowl and mix in lemon rind, half of the parsley and 1 packet of lemon butter finishing sauce from the salmon. Lay the salmon sides out on a lined baking tray, and then top with breadcrumb mixture. Press it in slightly so it sticks to the top of the salmon. Bake the salmon in the oven for 15-20 mins, or slightly longer if you prefer it well cooked.

Step 3

Combine remaining parsley with pomegranate seeds. Remove the salmon from the oven and top with pomegranate mixture.

Step 4

In a bowl, combine the tahini, yoghurt and ½ cup of water to form a runny dressing. Spread the spinach over a large platter, top with roasted pumpkin and drizzle with tahini dressing. Serve salad and salmon on the table for everyone to help themselves & enjoy!
