1. Heat water in a tier steamer. Season the couscous, then toss with 1 tsp rice bran oil.

3. When the water in the steamer comes to the boil, tip the broccoli into the water, then lay the salmon in the tier above.

4. Cook for 3 minutes until the salmon is cooked and the broccoli is tender.

5. Drain the broccoli and run it under cold water to cool.

6. Mix together the olive oil and lemon juice.

7. Toss the broccoli, pomegranate seeds and pumpkin seeds through the couscous with the lemon dressing.

8. At the last moment, roughly chop the watercress and toss through the couscous.
