Poached Eggs With Smoked Salmon Recipe

January 11, 2018

This is the recipe for a wonderful delight for breakfast – poached eggs with salmon! They are very nutritious and tasty, and which is also very important – fast and easy to make. Salmon is a wonderful source of antioxidants as well as vitamin B12, Vitamin D and Selenium.

Preparation time: 15 minutes.

Here are the ingredients that you will need to make 2 portions of eggs:

  • 4 eggs (make sure they are really fresh)
  • 2 table spoon white wine vinegar
  • bread
  • a little butter for spreading
  • 8 slices smoked salmon
  • chopped chives or any other herbs and pepper to serve


  1. To poach the eggs, bring the water to the boil and add the vinegar. Lower the heat in order to make the water simmer gently. Stir the water to make a small whirlpool (this will help to wrap the white around the yolk), then put in the eggs one by one (I prefer to crack them individually into a ramekin or cup). Cook each for about 4 mins, then remove with a slotted spoon. Tip: never salt the water as it will break the white and make it go wispy.
  2. Lightly toast the bread, spread some butter and then put a couple of slices of salmon on each. Top each with an egg and garnish with chopped chives, herbs and pepper. Bon appetite!
