Smoked Salmon and Poached Egg Sandwich (BC)

Salmon and boiled egg are a great match, and they make a great sandwich too. I poached the egg, but you can alternatively also boil or bake it, or scramble them with some cream and fresh chives.

Ingredients:

  • 1 mini ciabatta
  • 1 tbs cream cheese
  • 1 tsp fresh chives, chopped
  • salt/pepper
  • 1 slice salmon (40gr)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp capers

Serves 1 as part of the Budget Challenge

Recipe:

Combine the cream cheese, chives and some salt and pepper to taste.
Cut the ciabatta open and spread the cream cheese on the bottom half. Top with the salmon.

Bring a deep pot of water to the boil. Crack the egg gently in a shallow boil. When the water boils create a vortex with a spoon or knife, then slip the egg into the middle of the vortex.
Cook the egg for 2 minutes for soft or 4 for a firm egg yolk that isn’t dry.
Take the egg out of the water with a slotted spoon and place it on the salmon. Top with the capers, then with the top half of the ciabatta bun.
