  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C. Boil the eggs in a large pan of gently simmering water for 5 mins for a runny yolk. Remove with a slotted spoon and run under cold water until the shells are cool enough to handle. Peel and set aside.
  2. Put the asparagus in a roasting tin and lay the salmon fillets on top. Drizzle with half the oil and scatter over the coriander seeds; season. Bake for 15 mins or until the salmon is just cooked and the asparagus is slightly charred.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a small pan over a medium heat and add the garlic. Cook for 1 min or until aromatic (but not coloured), then add the lentils and spring onions. Cook for 3-4 mins to warm through, then stir through the dill; season well. Serve with the salmon, asparagus and halved eggs, garnished with extra dill.
