Season the creme fraiche with salt and pepper and place 1tbsp on the bottom of a ramekin dish. Add some of the smoked salmon strips and sprinkle over the chives.
Alternatively, you can use any of the flavour combinations noted below - or simply add what you have in your fridge!
Gently crack an egg over the top of the smoked salmon and then add the remaining creme fraiche. Add a little more of the smoked salmon, but don't add too much. Take care not to overdo any of the additional flavours or the egg will get lost.
Place the ramekin in a baking tray and pour in boiling water enough to come halfway up the side of the ramekin. Place in an oven at 180C/160CFan and cook for 15 minutes or thereabouts until the egg is cooked how you like it.
Serve immediately with hot buttered toast.
This is a great dish to get creative with. Here are some suggested flavour combinations to try:
saute mushrooms in garlic butter
tomato and tarragon
smoked salmon and dill
smoked mackerel and spring onion
ham, tomato, cheddar cheese and chive
chorizo, roasted red pepper and chilli
Just take care not to add too much of any one flavour, otherwise you will overpower the egg.You can also substitute the creme fraiche for sour cream.
