Avo & Salmon Toast

This recipe is courtesy of my husband darranboyd.com

He has become a bit of an avo & salmon addict and this creation is yummy, easy to make and perfect as a late breakfast or lunch. Its pretty light and leave out the bread for a no-carb version. This recipe serves 2 people. Hope you enjoy

Ingredients

2 avos, halved
4 eggs
30g smoked salmon
fresh dill
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices of good quality bread

Method

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Half the avo’s and remove the pips. Layer the inside of the avon where the pip was with a little bit of the smoked salmon. Crack all your eggs into a bowl making sure not to break the yolks. Carefully remove the yolks with either an egg shell or your hand and place inside the avo. Place more salmon onto, season with salt and pepper and garnish with some of the fresh dill. Bake in the oven for 8 – 9 minutes. The yolks should still be runny.

While the avon are baking drizzle the bread slices with a bit of olive oil and grill on a griddle pan until its nice and toasted. Serve together with the avo halves and enjoy.
