Baking Tray


Roast the Broccoli

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

c) Pop the Tenderstem onto a baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.

d) When the oven is hot, roast on the middle shelf until tender, 10-12 mins.


Bring on the Croutons

a) Meanwhile, tear the ciabatta into roughly 2cm chunks.

b) Pop the ciabatta chunks onto another baking tray in a single layer. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat well.

c) Bake the croutons on the top shelf until golden, 8-10 mins, then remove from the oven and set aside.

Make the Dressing

a) While everything is in the oven, roughly chop the capers.

b) Zest and juice the lemon.

c) In a medium bowl, combine the capers and lemon juice with the mayo, olive oil and sugar (see pantry for amounts). Season generously with pepper.

Feeling Crabby

a) Pop the crab meat into a small bowl and stir through one third of the capers and lemon dressing.

Hello Avo

a) Halve the avocado and remove the stone.

b) Use a tablespoon to scoop the flesh out onto a board, face-down.

c) Slice into 0.5cm thick slices.

Assemble your Salads

a) Divide the rocket between 2 serving bowls and toss through the baked croutons.

b) Drizzle over half the capers dressing and top with the roasted Tenderstem and sliced avocado. 

c) Top the salads with the dressed crab meat, then drizzle over the remaining dressing.

d) Sprinkle over the lemon zest to finish.
