Light cream cheese

2 tbs, softened

Lemon juice

1 tbs

Light rye bread

Poach eggs gently for 1–2 minutes or until egg whites are set and yolks remain soft. Remove eggs using a slotted spoon. Drain on a plate lined with paper towel.
  2. Meanwhile, combine cheese, juice and dill in a medium bowl. Add fennel and capers and toss to combine. Season fennel salad with freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Grill or toast bread on both sides until lightly browned. Top with fennel salad, smoked salmon and poached eggs. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
