3 ounces of Smoked Salmon
1 English Muffin
4 Egg Yolks
2 tablespoons of Unsalted Butter
½ cup of Plain Greek Yogurt
10 dashes of Tabasco Hot Sauce or to taste
¾ tablespoons of Salt or to taste
Pinch of Ground White Pepper or to taste
Bring about 1 inch of water to a boil in the bottom of a double boiler or large saucepan.
Cut the lemon in half and whisk lemon juice and egg yolks in the top of the double boiler or a bowl. Adjust the heat to let the water come to a gentle simmer. Set the bowl over the top of the double boiler or saucepan and whisk. Lift the bowl occasionally to allow the trapped steam to escape so the bowl does not become too hot. For about 1 to 2 minutes continue to whisk the mixture until the sauce thickens. Do not whisk and cook until it curdles.
After the cooking is complete, take the bowl off the simmer and mix in the unsalted melted butter. Then, begin to mix in slowly the greek yogurt. You want the sauce to have a smooth texture. Once smooth, begin to whisk in tabasco, salt, pepper, and some lemon zest from your lemon used above. Do not keep warm for more than 3 hours.
Toast or heat your English muffin as desired.
While the English muffin is toasting or heating, cook 2 eggs over medium or whatever style you enjoy!
Once English muffin is heated and eggs are cooked, assemble! Slice your English muffin in half, top each half with smoked salmon, 1 egg, and your hollandaise sauce! Top with some spinach too if you want to get in some of your green veggies and enjoy!
