Ingredients

Serves: 2
  • 1 large just ripe avocado (min.)
  • 4 slices of Alfred Enderby smoked salmon
  • 4 British Blue eggs
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt

Method:

Cooks in: 20 mins • Difficulty: Medium
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C Fan/Gas mark 6.
  2. Halve the avocado lengthways and remove the stone. Cut a thin slither off the skin side of the avocado halves to keep them level and place onto a greased baking tray.
  3. Scoop out some of the avocado from where the stone was and keep to one side in a small bowl.
  4. Line each avocado cavity with a slice of Alfred Enderby smoked salmon, followed by an egg yolk.
  5. Beat the egg whites with a small squeeze of lemon juice until combined and pour into each cavity. Season with salt and pepper and bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the whites have set.
  6. Whilst the eggs are baking, using a fork, smash the reserved avocado flesh and season with a little salt and pepper, rapeseed oil, and a good squeeze of lemon juice and leave to one side.
  7. Remove from the oven and grate a little Lincolnshire Poacher cheese over the top and garnish with a handful of micro salad leaves.
  8. Serve immediately with some toasted and buttered Spelt and Honey Loaf and the smashed avocado.
