This Smoked Salmon + Poached Eggs on Toast brings at-home brunch to a whole new level. Skip the pancakes next weekend and sink your utensils into this.
!How to poach an egg:
Note: You'll want to poach your eggs individually.
Bring a small pot of water to a steady simmer. (Some people add a light splash of vinegar to the water; I've tried with and without, and I've never noticed a different, so I skip it.)
Crack your eggs into individual ramekins or small bowls.
With a spatula or large spoon, create a gentle whirlpool in the simmering water; this will help the egg white wrap around the yolk.
Gently tip the egg into the water whirlpool, white first. Cook for two minutes.
Carefully remove the egg with a slotted spoon.
Carefully transfer the egg to an ice bath for approx. 10 seconds to stop it from cooking (protein will continue to cook after it's removed from heat, so you want to ensure you get that runny silky yoke).
After a quick dunk into the ice bath, transfer your egg to a paper towel and gently pat it dry. Remove any wispy white egg with the edge of your spoon, and transfer to your plate.
