Preparation Time: 10 mins

Cooking Time: 10 mins

Ingredients:

50g butter, softened
2 tablespoons fresh dill
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 pinch cayenne pepper
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 pinch salt
4 eggs
2 white muffins, split and toasted
110g sliced smoked salmon
1 pinch cayenne pepper
salt and ground black pepper to taste
4 small fresh dill sprigs

Method:

Stir butter, dill, lemon zest, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper in a bowl until combined. Set aside.

Fill a large saucepan with 5 to 7cm (2 to 3 in) of water and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, pour in vinegar and a pinch of salt. Crack an egg into a bowl then gently slip the egg into the water. Repeat with remaining eggs. Poach eggs until whites are firm and yolks have thickened but are not hard, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon, dab on a kitchen towel to remove excess water, then transfer to a warm plate.

Generously spread each muffin half with dill butter. Top with a layer of smoked salmon, then 1 poached egg. Season with cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper to taste. Garnish with a dill sprig and serve.
