Smoked salmon, baked avocado and egg

Smoked salmon, baked avocado and egg
  • Serves 4
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins


  • 2 ripe avocado
  • 4 eggs medium
  • ½ pack smoked salmon
  • Pinch cayenne / dried chilli flakes
  • ¼ bag grated cheddar
  • ½ tub sour cream (optional)
  • ¼ pack chives (optional)
  • Wedge of lime (optional)


  1. 1

    Preheat the oven (180°c fan / 200°c / gas 6)

  2. 2

    Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and scoop a little extra of the flesh out, so you can fit more egg into it

  3. 3

    Cut a slice of smoked salmon in half and place half a slice of smoked salmon into each cavity of avocado

  4. 4

    Break the first egg into a bowl. Using a spoon, place the yolk into the avocado, then carefully add the egg white (you may not manage to add all the white). Then repeat with the other eggs.

  5. 5

    Top with grated cheese and a pinch of cayenne pepper or dried chilli flakes

  6. 6

    Scrunch up a sheet of foil and place it on a baking tray. Gently nestle the avocado halves in the foil so they do not roll about.

  7. 7

    Bake for around 15 minutes, or until the egg whites are opaque and the yolk is cooked to your liking.

  8. 8

    Serve with sour cream, a few snippets of chives and lime wedge

  9. 9

    Chef’s tip: For a little alternative – add a splash of tabasco for extra spice
