Make the vinaigrette: Put all the ingredients except the nori in a tall cylindrical jug and blitz with the blender. Pour into a bowl. Add the nori ribbons to the vinaigrette to rehydrate and to impart their flavour to the vinaigrette.

Cook the Basmati rice: Place the rice, salt and water in a pot, bring to the boil, reduce the heat to medium, cook for 10 minutes, cover with a lid and turn off the heat. Leave for 10 minutes.

Cook the salmond: Season each portion on both sides. Place a little olive oil in a nonstick pan over medium heat and cook the salmon for 1 minute, turn over and cook for just 30 seconds (it is best medium rare). Set aside to rest.

To serve: Place a lettuce leaf in the centre of each plate, scoop basmati rice into the centre of each leaf and top with the salmon – if you like, break the salmon in half to show the lovely moist centre with its orange hues.

To finish, drizzle some of the beautiful vinaigrette over the top and around each leaf, picking a few of the nori ribbons and draping them over the dish.
