Andrew Carmellini's luxurious, creamy eggs are heavenly on their own, but serving them with smoky sable, briny roe and rich sour cream puts them over the top.
6 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 ounces smoked sablefish, sliced 1/4 inch thick (see Note)
Trout roe (see Note), thinly sliced scallions and sour cream, for garnish
Toasted sesame, everything or plain bagels, for serving
How to Make It
In a medium nonstick skillet, combine the beaten eggs with the heavy cream and 1/2 tablespoon of the butter. Cook the eggs over moderately low heat, whisking them constantly, until small curds form and the eggs are creamy, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.
Gently stir the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of butter into the eggs and season them lightly with salt. Spoon the eggs into 2 serving bowls and top with the sliced sablefish. Garnish with trout roe, sliced scallions and a dollop of sour cream. Serve right away with toasted bagels.
If smoked sablefish and trout roe are unavailable, smoked salmon and salmon roe can be substituted.
