Video: Smoked Salmon and Dill Eggs Benedict
See how to make delicious smoked salmon eggs Benedict without the hollandaise.
In this video, you’ll see how to make lower-calorie smoked salmon eggs Benedict. This is a simple eggs Benedict recipe with fewer calories than the typical hollandaise sauce-smothered eggs Benedict. What’s the secret? Chef John replaces high-calorie hollandaise sauce with compound butter, which is essentially room-temperature butter mixed here with fresh dill, lemon zest, and some seasonings. Spread a little compound butter over your toasted English muffin, then layer with smoked salmon and poached eggs. Is this diet food? No, it’s still rich, delicious, and uses tasty butter; but it’s also not as highly caloric as eggs Benedict slathered in hollandaise sauce. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s Smoked Salmon and Dill Eggs Benedict.
