Smoked Salmon, Poached egg and avocado

I have to admit that breakfast is not my favourite meal time. That said, I do love eggs and will often cook this for brunch. I often find I need a coffee before any food is consumed.

With someone who struggles to absorb B12, eggs are a great source and we all know how healthy both salmon and Avocado’s are.

Top tip

Always use fresh free range eggs. Eggs that are not fresh will split while poaching.

How to poach an egg

  1. Fill a deep saucepan with boiling water from a kettle to about 5″deep.
  2. Bring the water to a light simmer over a medium heat.
  3. Place an egg into a cup, add a pinch of salt to the water and add the egg.
  4. Simmer for 2 minutes for a runny yolk or 4 for a hard yolk.
  5. Remove from the pan, and rest on some kitchen towel.
