  1. Cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, season the salmon fillet with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the salmon for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until cooked. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Cook the broccoli in lightly salted boiling water for 3-4 minutes, or until tender.
  4. For the beurre noisette, gently melt the butter in the pan over a medium heat and continue cooking until it starts to foam. Watch carefully as the colour darkens and a nutty aroma develops then add the lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper. Remove the pan from the heat.
  5. Toss the spaghetti with half of the beurre noisette and serve immediately topped with the salmon fillet. Spoon over the remaining beurre noisette and serve with the cooked broccoli.
