Lox Benedict- Sometimes I actually have time in my schedule to attend a Sunday brunch in New Orleans and I’m always conscience of watching my calories because I’m definitely going to drink some. Attached is my version of salmon benedict.

  • 2 ¼ cup unbleached flour plus ½ cup-1 cup for rolling
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter cold
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Chef's Hollandaise

  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon warm water
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon caper juice
  • pinch salt
  • 2 sticks melted unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons capers


  • 12 large eggs
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 8 oz. smoked salmon
  • 4 tablespoons chopped chives


  • In a large bowl add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar stir together with hand. Slice butter into flour and with hands blend until coarse. Make a hole in middle then add buttermilk. Mix until a ball of dough is formed, pour on floured work surface and knead 5 times and roll out to 1/4 inch. Cut with floured biscuit cutter. Add to baking sheet and pop in oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • To make hollandaise, place all ingredients in blender except butter and capers. Cover and blitz on high for 5 seconds. Melt butter, cut blender on low and add butter in a slow steady stream. Strain if lumpy, transfer to a metal bowl, stir in capers and keep warm over a pot of warm water. Sauce should be thick not runny.
  • To poach eggs, fill a 5 qt. pot 2/3 of the way with water, add vinegar and bring to a simmer (small bubbles on bottom of pot). Crack 2 eggs into individual containers, stir water and pour 1 egg in at a time. Cook for about 2-3 minutes, remove with a slotted spoon and dry on a piece of paper towel. Repeat until all eggs are poached. I would recommend doing only 3 eggs at a time.
  • To assemble, cut biscuits in half and place 2 slices of lox, 1 egg, 2 tablespoons of hollandaise and a garnish of chives on each biscuit half.


Preheat oven to 425 F.
