Ingredients

For the dressing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the eggs in a pan of boiling water for 8 mins. Drain, then cool under running water. Peel the eggs, then cut them into quarters. Heat grill to medium.

  • STEP 2

    Put the salmon, skin-side down, onto a baking tray, then grill for 4 mins. Turn the fish, add the torn pitta to the grill pan, then cook for 2-3 mins more until the salmon has cooked through and the pitta is crisp and golden. Leave to cool.

  • STEP 3

    Meanwhile, place the watercress, horseradish and garlic in a food processor, then whizz until finely chopped. Add the yogurt and 3-4 tbsp water, then pulse for a few secs more to make a smooth, pourable dressing. Add a little lemon juice and seasoning to taste.

  • STEP 4

    Break the salmon into large flakes. Scatter the lettuce over a platter, then top with the egg, salmon and pitta. Drizzle over the dressing, toss and serve.
