  • For Hollandaise Sauce:
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp golden sherry
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 115g melted butter
  • For the eggs Benedict grill
  • 675g salmon fillet
  • 225g melted butter
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 4 tbsp plus 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 225g cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon leaves
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tbsp double cream
  • 3 dashes hot pepper sauce (recommended: Tabasco)
  • 3 bagels, sliced
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh chives, for garnish
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves, for garnish
1) For the Hollandaise sauce:

Place the egg yolks in a saucepan. Hold the pan over a stove flame approximately 10cm above the burner and whisk until slightly thickened and bright yellow, about 2 to 3 minutes.

2) Pour the thickened yolk into a blender and add lemon juice, sherry, and cayenne. With the motor running, add the melted butter in a slow, steady stream, blending until the sauce is smooth and thickened.

3) For the Eggs Benedict grill: Place the salmon in a large baking dish. Combine butter, 4 tbsp lemon juice, and lemon zest and pour the mixture over the salmon. Season with salt and pepper and marinate for 1 to 2 hours.

3) Preheat an outdoor grill to medium-high heat.

4) Meanwhile, mix the cream cheese, tarragon, and 1 tsp lemon juice together and set aside. In another bowl, blend together eggs, double cream, hot pepper sauce, and salt and pepper, to taste, and set aside.

5) Preheat a nonstick skillet for the eggs by placing the pan on the grill. At the same time, place the salmon on the grill and cook until desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side.

6) Pour egg mixture into the pan and cook the eggs by continually moving cooked portions toward the center of the pan allowing the uncooked portion to flow to the sides, flipping when close to set.

7) Place bagels on the grill cut side down and toast. Remove and spread a portion of the cream cheese mixture on the toasted side of each bagel. Place the bagels on serving plates. Top with cooked egg, salmon, and hollandaise sauce. Garnish with chopped chives and parsley.
