DIRECTIONS

  • In a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil until shimmering. Add the poblanos, scallions, garlic, Aleppo pepper, and ½ teaspoon each salt and white pepper. Cover and cook, stirring, until the chilies are softened but not browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and stir in the tomatoes and capers; set aside. Wipe out the skillet.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and ¾ teaspoon salt. Return the skillet to medium and heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil until shimmering. Pour the eggs into the center of the pan. Using a silicone spatula, continuously stir the eggs, pushing them toward the middle as they set at the edges and folding the cooked egg over on itself. Cook until just set, about 1½ minutes. The curds should be shiny, wet and soft. Taste and season with salt and pepper, then divide among warmed serving plates.
  • Top each serving with a portion of the poblano mixture. Sprinkle with feta and dill, then drizzle with oil.
