Prep time: 10 minutes

Servings: 1 people


Heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Brush the cut sides of the avocado with the oil and griddle for 2 minutes, until lines appear.

Turn off the heat and turn the avocado halves skin side down to keep warm while you poach the egg.

Bring a small pan of water to a bubbling boil.

Turn down the heat as low as it will go and swirl the water to create a whirlpool.

Break the egg into a ramekin and pour into the centre of the whirlpool.

Poach for 3 minutes for a runny yolk.

Arrange the avocado halves on a plate with the poached egg and smoked salmon, squeeze over some lemon juice and grind over black pepper to serve.
