4 tbsp buckwheat flour

3. Heat a large frying pan with 1/2 tsp oil on a medium heat and fry the celeriac, onion and apple mix for 2 mins until softened slightly. Transfer this mix into a bowl, and stir in the buckwheat flour, mustard, half of the juice from the lemon and half of the dill. Season with sea salt and black pepper and mix well. Form into 6 rostis, 1 cm thick.

4. Heat the same frying pan on a medium-high heat with 1 tbsp oil and fry the rostis for 3-4 mins each side until golden brown.

5. Meanwhile, boil a kettle. To poach the eggs; pour the boiling water into a saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer. Create a gentle whirlpool in the pan with a spoon then break an egg into the middle, one at a time. Cook for 4 mins. Remove from the pan.

6. To make a dill dressing; In a bowl, mix together the remaining dill, remaining lemon juice and 1/2 tbsp oil. Season with sea salt and black pepper.

7. Serve the rostis slightly overlapping on two warm plates and top with slices of the smoked salmon followed by the poached eggs. Drizzle with the dill dressing and serve alongside the watercress, spinach and rocket salad.
