  1. Put the clementine zest and juice in a large bowl and whisk in the vinegar, mustard, oil and most of the dill. Add the fennel and radishes; season.
  2. Add the rocket, toss well, then divide between 6 plates. Top with the clementine rounds and salmon. Drizzle over any dressing left in the bowl, then scatter with the fennel fronds and remaining dill to serve.

Tip: Don't throw away the clementine peel – add to mulled wine for extra citrus flavour.
