Chorizo, poached egg & spinach salad with a Caesar dressing


  • Cook the chorizo in a little hot oil until crispy.
  • To make the dressing, mix the crème fraiche, mayonnaise, mustard, garlic, Worcestershire, Tabasco, lemon juice and anchovies with a little hot water if too thick for sprinkling. Taste for seasoning. 
  • Bring the water to the boil in a large pan, add a little vinegar and vigorously swirl the water. Then individually break the eggs into a bowl (or cup) and carefully put into the water. Poach to the desired degree, basting with a little of the water as you do so. Drain well and neaten up the edges.
  • Gently toss the spinach, chorizo, tomatoes and avocado with the dressing to taste. 
  • To serve, mound the salad on individual plates, place an egg on top and sprinkle with more dressing and parmesan.
