Nicola Millbank’s smoked salmon & wasabi Hollandaise bagel
Fancy mixing up your brunch? This will be your new favourite bagel, a mixture of classic and contemporary flavours, but above all, utterly delicious.
Pop the egg yolk into a heatproof bowl and set over a pan of simmering water. Add the white wine vinegar and whisk until it starts to thicken. Take the bowl off the heat and whilst vigorously whisking, slowly pour in the butter. Add the wasabi paste, a good pinch of salt, mix and set to the side.
Gently crack the egg into the pan of simmering water, cooking for 3-4 minutes until the white is solid but the yolk is still soft.
Top the base of the toasted bagel with the mixed leaves, cucumber and smoked salmon and top with the poached egg. Spoon over the wasabi hollandaise and add the top of the bagel to form a sandwich.
