Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict
with Creamy Dill Caper Sauce

Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict

This dish takes Eggs Benedict to new heights with silky, smoked salmon and a creamy sauce laced with dill and capers. Full of decadent flavor and so much healthier than traditional Hollandaise, the sauce made with canola oil is a heavenly alternative.



  1. To make sauce: In medium bowl, whisk yogurt and canola oil until blended.
  2. Whisk in lemon juice, then stir in chopped dill, capers and lemon zest.
  3. Toast English muffins.
  4. Place a slice or two of salmon on top of each English muffin half.
  5. To poach eggs: Fill large, deep skillet about 3/4-inch to top with water and bring to boil over high heat.
  6. Add vinegar, then reduce heat to medium-low.
  7. Crack egg into small bowl, then gently add it to boiling water.
  8. Repeat with remaining eggs until all four eggs are in skillet. Cook until whites of eggs are set but yolks are still slightly runny, about 3 minutes.
  9. Use slotted spoon to transfer eggs to paper towel to drain. (Alternatively, cook eggs over-easy in nonstick skillet.)
  10. Transfer each egg to salmon-topped English muffin half.
  11. Pour 2 tablespoons of sauce on top of each muffin and garnish each with sprig of dill.
