Baked avocado with smoked salmon & egg recipe

Avocados are really versatile, try them baked with smoked salmon and egg for a quick, healthy brunch


avocado 3 large

eggs 6 small, separated

smoked salmon 3 slices, cut into pieces

chives finely chopped to make 1 tbsp

cayenne pepper a pinch (optional)

toasted dark rye bread to serve


Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Halve the avocados lengthways and remove their stones.

Cut a small slice off the skin-side of the avocado halves to stop them rolling and put them onto a baking tray. Scoop out some of the middle from where the stone was, add a little salmon to each and then add the egg yolks.

Beat the egg whites quickly, so it’s one uniform consistency, and pour in as much as you can.

Grind over black pepper and bake for 10 minutes, or until the whites have set. Scatter over the chives and a pinch of cayenne, if you like. Serve with rye soldiers for dunking.
