Smoked salmon egg's Benedict

Method

  • To make Hollandaise, whisk the 4 egg yolks with the water, 1 tbsp vinegar and lthe emon juice over a bowl of hot water until it starts to thicken (being careful that the base doesn't touch the water). Then add the warm ghee, little by little, until thickened, continually whisking. Season and add a little hot water if too thick. Taste for seasoning and set aside.
  • Bring a thin layer of water to the boil in a large pan and swirl in a little vinegar. Individually break the eggs into a bowl (or cup) and carefully put into the water. Then poach to the desired degree, basting with a little of the water as you do so. Drain well and neaten up the edges.
  • To serve, toast the muffins and place on individual plates. Then top each muffin with smoked salmon, an egg and a spoonful of the Hollandaise.
