  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 8 slices cured salmon
  • 1/4 cup Béarnaise Sauce


  • Heat a few inches of water in a large skillet with coarse salt and vinegar.
  • Crack each egg into a separate cup or ramekin.
  • When water is boiling gently slip the egg from the cup into the water. Remove skillet from the heat and cover. Leave for 5 minutes undisturbed.
  • While eggs are cooking, toast the croissant buns (you may have to trim the top to make it sit flat on your plate).
  • Position 2 bun halves on a plate. Top with 2 slices of cured salmon. When eggs are cooked remove the egg gently with a slotted spoon allowing excess water to drain off. Top the cured salmon with a poached egg. Spoon Béarnaise Sauce over the egg and serve.
