    juniperwoman's Note:

    There are occasions when you have houseguests and you want to knock 'em dead with amazement at your culinary prowess. Over the breakfast table, preferably, because who has time to make a stellar breakfast? You do... using this recipe from the Williams-Sonoma book, Christmas Entertaining. I haven't made it yet, but I can hardly wait for my moment. (Note: I reworded it for clarity)

    1. 1
      First, fill the bottom of a large double boiler with the right amount of water: you want the water level to come just below the top pan. If you don't have a double boiler, use a large saucepan and a large metal bowl instead. Bring the water almost to a boil.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, in a bowl, lightly whisk the eggs, and stir in the butter pieces and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into the top pan of the double boiler.
    3. 3
      Whisk continuously until the eggs start to thicken, about 10 minutes. Add the salmon and chives and continue to whisk until a creamy mass of tiny curds has formed, 1-2 minutes longer. Note: the curds should be soft. Don't let them become firm!
    4. 4
      Taste and add a little salt if desired. You're done. Knock 'em dead.

      Well, I tried making this for 2 servings (and thus about a third of the ingredients) and it came out looking like couscous and was ready in 5 minutes. It was alright, but not as much flavour as I would have expected. I suspect it is better with the original amounts of ingredients.
