smoked salmon eggs benedict with creamy dill caper sauce



  1. Step 1

    To make sauce: In medium bowl, whisk yogurt and canola oil until blended. Whisk in lemon juice, then stir in chopped dill, capers and lemon zest.
  2. Step 2

    Toast English muffins. Place slice or two of salmon on top of each English muffin half.
  3. Step 3

    To poach eggs: Fill large, deep skillet about 3/4-inch (2 cm) to top with water and bring to boil over high heat. Add vinegar, and then reduce heat to medium-low. Crack egg into small bowl, and then gently add it to boiling water. Repeat with remaining eggs until all four eggs are in skillet. Cook until whites of eggs are set but yolks are still slightly runny, about 3 minutes. Use slotted spoon to transfer eggs to paper towel to drain. (Alternatively, cook eggs over-easy in nonstick skillet.)
  4. Step 4

    Presentation: Transfer each egg to salmon-topped English muffin half. Pour 2 tbsp (25 mL) of sauce on top of each muffin half and garnish each with sprig of dill.
