Step 1: Make the relish Place the chille, onion, tomatoes, vinegar, salt, black pepper and sugar in a bowl, mix well, then stir in the olive oil and the chopped herbs.
Step 2: Fry the shallots Melt the butter with a good glug of olive oil in a large frying pan over a gentle heat, add the shallots and cook for 2 minutes being careful not to color the shallots.
Step 3: Cook the vegetables Add the zucchini, spinach and asparagus to the pan, stirring to combine, and continue to cook for another 5-7 minutes until the water from the spinach has evaporated.
Step 4: Finish the salmon mixture Add the light and heavy cream, mustard, lemon zest, a good amount of grated nutmeg and white pepper. Cook for a further 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, then carefully stir in the pink salmon directly from the can and taste for seasoning.

Step 6: Plate and serve Serve with the red onion and dill relish, strips of toasted sourdough and wedges of lemon.
