Ingredients

Poached eggs

Assembly

Hollandaise sauce

Instructions

Poached eggs

First, prepare your poached eggs. Fill 2/3 of a medium saucepan up with water and bring water to a light boil. Once lightly, boiling, reduce heat to to just simmering and add in the vinegar. Crack eggs into individual ramekins and add eggs to the saucepan one-at-a-time, sliding them into the water.
Once all the eggs are in the water, remove the saucepan from heat and cover the saucepan with a lid. Let the eggs sit for 4 minutes and then remove the eggs onto a plate with paper towel to dry off.

Hollandaise sauce

Next make the hollandaise sauce. Place egg yolks, salt and lemon juice in a small mixing bowl.
Melt butter in the microwave and cool it for a minute. Add butter to the mixing bowl and blend the mixture until it is thick and creamy (this should only take around 30 seconds).

Assembly

Toast the pita bread and plate for serving.
Divide spinach leaves between the 4 pitas and lay them on top.
Next, place a poached egg on top of the spinach on each pita, and lay a piece of smoked salmon on top of that.
Pour on hollandaise sauce (to taste). It is likely you'll have some left over.
Finally, drizzle on some creamy balsamic dressing to give your dish an extra touch of flavor.

Tips

  • Store extra hollandaise sauce refrigerated in an air-tight container. You can use the spare sauce on eggs during the week, or even on roasted asparagus or broccoli.
