  • 1 slice of buttered sourdough toast
  • 2 slices of smoked salmon

  • 2-3 asparagus spears

Lightly toast the bread.

Add the steamed asparagus spears.

Add the salmon.

Top with the golden runny fresh poached egg and a few leaves.

Grind on some lovely black pepper and a sprinkle of sea salt.

Have it with a small glass of OJ to help iron absorption; better still have an orange for pud.
