Steamed Salmon and Eggs

Steamed Salmon and Eggs

Brunch is my favourite weekend dish. I love the lazy, decadent feeling of a leisurely breakfast knowing I have nothing to do for the rest of day.  However, I find myself getting a little bored of the same brunch fare.   This week I give you a brunch staple with a twist, steamed salmon and eggs. They are easy, fluffy and creamy all at the same time.  Enjoy, Katie x

  • Get started by whisking your eggs together with the stock, sesame oil, freshly chopped chives, salt, lemon zest and sesame seeds (if you’re using them).
  • Pour the mixture evenly into 4 ramekins or cast-iron bowls.
  • Pop about 1 inch of water into a large saucepan and place over a medium to high heat. Place the ramekins into the saucepan and cover with the lid.
  • Allow water to simmer, not boil violently as to avoid water getting into the eggs, and cook for 10-12 minutes.
  • When eggs have cooked, add the salmon and a little lemon zest on top.
  • Enjoy!
