  • 20g mixed baby salad leaves
  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • 2 radishes, sliced
  • Cress for garnish

  1. Poach the egg. Bring a deep saucepan of water to a boil. Add the vinegar. Stir the water, crack the egg into the water and carefully tip it into the centre of the saucepan. Cook for 3-4 minutes. Lift the egg out and drain it on a piece of kitchen paper.
  2. Warm up the hollandaise sauce in a small saucepan. 
  3. Toast the sourdough. Spread the horseradish sauce over and arrange the salmon on top. Put the poached egg on the middle of the toast and pour the hollandaise over. Garnish with the salad leaves, shallot and radish slices, cress and a drizzle of the olive oil. 

Cooks tips

When tipping the egg into a boiling water, keep it very close to the water surface.
