Egg yolk, raw

3 medium

Lemon Juice, Fresh

1 tablespoon(s)

0% fat natural Greek yogurt

175 g

Dijon Mustard

½ teaspoon(s), level

White Wine Vinegar

1 tablespoon(s)

Egg, whole, raw

4 medium, raw

Wholemeal English Muffin

2 individual, halved

Smoked salmon

100 g

Chives, Fresh

2 tablespoon(s), snipped, plus extra to serve


  1. Put the egg yolks, lemon juice, Greek yogurt and mustard in a bowl. Bring a small pan of water to a simmer. Set the bowl over the pan and whisk until the sauce has thickened. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.
  2. Bring a deep pan of water to a boil and add the vinegar. Break 1 egg into a ramekin. Swirl the water with a spoon to create a whirlpool and slide in the egg. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then using a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper. Repeat with 3 more eggs
  3. While the eggs cook, toast the muffins. Spread a little of the sauce over each muffin half and divide the salmon between them, then top each with a poached egg.
  4. Stir the chives through the remaining sauce, then spoon over the eggs. Sprinkle over extra snipped fresh chives to serve.
