Method: Cook the rice in twice the volume of water until tender (about 20 minutes for brown rice). Steam the peas over the rice for 2-3 minutes and then rinse in cold water to stop them from losing their bright green colour. When the rice is done and has absorbed all the water, stir the vinegar and soy sauce into it and allow to get cold.

Make the dressing by blending the cottage cheese, lemon zest, dill, yoghurt and salt and pepper in a blender or food processor until smooth. Arrange the lettuce, smoked salmon, peas, shrimp and rice on plates and drizzle the dressing over the lettuce. Serve the zested lemon on the side, cut into wedges.
