Egg florentine with smoked salmon


I woke up feeling the need to watch Think Like a Man which inspired this meal. The scene in which Dominic cooked for Lauren, gingered me to try  egg florentine for myself :).

I have never been a fan of runny eggs but I thought to myself really how bad can it get :). Now that I have tried it I am totally addicted ;)…I’m never fully cooking my eggs anymore …runny eggs for me all day long😍. I had this with some smoked salmon keeping with our seafood month and it was AMAZING!!!!! Maybe next attempt of egg florentine I will try it without the salmon just to experience the alternative taste 😆


Prep time: 5mins
Cook time: 10mins
Serves: 4



2 x whole oven bottom muffins
2 tablespoons vinegar
4 x fresh eggs 
500g baby spinach leaves
8 slices of smoked salmon
Hollandaise sauce
Black pepper


Preheat grill at 120°, line the oven tray with some baking sheets and set to the side.

Half the muffins, butter and place on tray, then toast in oven for 3 mins.

Boil water in a large saucepan add some vinegar and break an egg carefully into the saucepan careful not to break the yolk. Poach the eggs for about 3 minutes or until the white set but the yolks are still soft. Repeat this method for all 4 eggs.

Meanwhile heat up a pan large enough to hold all the spinach. When it is hot add butter and spinach. Turn it over with tongs for 1-2 minutes until wilted.

When the eggs are done, lift them out with a slotted spoon, pat dry with kitchen paper. Put a portion of spinach on each bread bun, 2 slices of salmon, egg and spoon over the hollandaise. Sprinkle black pepper and serve.


You can try this poached egg recipe with or without spinach and salmon. Whatever works for you but do share ur experiences below :).
