INGREDIENTS 1 teaspoon ghee or unsalted butter 2 fresh eggs 2 ounces wild smoked salmon (roughly 2 thin slices) 1/2 cup arugula 1/4 avocado, diced Squeeze of fresh lemon Pinch of freshly ground pepper
The key to a perfectly over-medium egg is controlling the temperature of your pan. Low and slow. I always set my burner to medium and place a pot lid over the pan, preferably glass so you can see your eggs. You don't want to lift it too many times and let the heat escape. The radiant heat cooks the egg whites from the top and you don't end up with gooey uncooked whites. Too hot and you get burned edges that taste like aluminium.
Heat your ghee over medium heat and swirl around in a nonstick pan. Slowly put 2 (unscrambled) eggs into the pan and cook until done, about 6 minutes.
While your eggs are cooking, assemble your arugula, avocado, and smoked salmon in a shallow bowl. Squeeze lemon juice over everything, and sprinkle with pepper.
Once your eggs are fully cooked, slide them into your bowl, and enjoy immediately.
Why not try our farm fresh duck eggs? Swap out the arugula for kale, or our nutrient rich micro-greens and hydroponic lettuce. Don't like fish? Then try our Raspberry Chipotle Bacon from Paradise Locker Meats.
