Step by step this way
  • 1.

    Heat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Halve the cabbage. Take one half and chop it into quarters. Slice out the thick cores. Finely shred the leaves. Pop them in a colander and rinse them.

  • 2.

    Trim the end off the broccoli. Break the broccoli into florets. Weight out 325g of the florets and stalks. Finely slice them. Pop the broccoli and cabbage in a pan. Cover with hot water from the kettle. Simmer for 3 mins.

  • 3.

    Peel and finely slice the shallots. Peel and finely slice the ginger into matchsticks. Grate or pare the zest off the lime. Juice it. Pop the juice to one side.

  • 4.

    Measure out 1 tbsp of the tamari and the vinegar. Pour into a small bowl. Add 1 tsp of the Chinese 5 spice powder and the lime zest. Stir to mix together.

  • 5.

    Drain the veg. Tip them back into the pan. Add the shallots and ginger. Add the tamari dressing. Stir to mix.

  • 6.

    Tear 2 large rectangles off a roll of greaseproof paper, around 50-60 cm long. Divide the veg between the two sheets. Pop a salmon fillet on each pile of veg.

  • 7.

    Bring the short ends of the parcels up to meet each other. Fold them over and down to make a parcel. Fold the sides in to make parcels, tucking them underneath the salmon. Pop on a baking tray. Bake for 15 mins till the salmon is cooked.

  • 8.

    Warm a dry frying pan over a medium heat. Measure out 1 tsp of the sesame seeds. Add to the pan. Stir and fry for 1 min till golden. Open up the salmon parcels – the salmon should be pink and opaque. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds and lime juice to serve.
