Breakfast Poached Eggs with
Avocado and Smoked Salmon
The first time I tried poached eggs was this past summer when I visited
my family in Canada. I always wanted to try making them, but it seemed
like it would turn into a kitchen disaster. Well, it did... my first attempt wasted 1/2 dozen eggs.
I'm not sure if it was because the eggs were of poor quality, or maybe I just didn't know what I was doing! Anyways, in my instructions I tried to be as clear as possible when explaining how to make these wonders. I absolutely love poached eggs now, and the avocado and salmon combination is just DELICIOUS. Who knew such a meal can be so satisfying and healthy?
What I Learned From My Mistakes When Making Poached Eggs ! ! ! MUST- READ ! ! !
- Buy high-quality eggs.
- The eggs should be fresh.
- Do NOT add salt to the boiling water.
- Vinegar helps shape the egg, add a teaspoon to the water.
- Boil the water first, but do NOT place the egg directly into boiling water.
- The water must be hot, not boiling.
- Stir the water as quickly as possible for the egg to spin and form its shape.
- Patience and experience will come a long way.
- Do not overcook poached eggs. This is why we have another method for hard-boiled eggs.
