Don't ask me the best method to poach an egg, because I stink at it.
I have tried the white vinegar and create a whirlpool, stirring and stirring with no success.
My egg always falls apart.
I have tried the plastic wrap method (click here, it's weird), and it works well enough, but it freaks me out to heat plastic in boiling water.
This dish was just dumb luck.
My friend Sarah sent me this link on how to poach the perfect egg.
It's all in the straining, my friends.
It really works.
Here is the link from Serious Eats.
So, after 4 tries, and 4 failed attempts, my 5th egg finally turned out poached.
I paired it with smoked salmon, fresh spinach and a mustard vinaigrette. Delicious.
