    1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water according to the instructions on the packet. Drain.
    2. Slice the salmon fillet into very thin slices; transfer into a bowl. Squeeze lemon juice on top of salmon; toss with a fork to ensure all the salmon is coated with lemon and starting to turn pale pink and 'cook'.
    3. Heat a dry frying pan until hot; add pine nuts and allow to toast and turn golden in colour without burning.
    4. Stir cream and crushed garlic together in a bowl; season to taste with lemon juice and a few finely chopped sprigs of dill.
    5. Drain pasta; place on a plate. Add rocket leaves, marinated salmon and top with creamy garlic sauce and toasted pine nuts.
