Eggs royale with smoked trout and yuzu hollandaise

Brunch + eggs go hand in hand. We love this twist on classic eggs royale. Homemade hollandaise can send a shiver of fear down the spines of even the most seasoned cooks but it’s really very easy provided you don’t let the sauce get too hot. Yuzu is a little citrus fruit from Japan that packs a big punch. It tastes like sour mandarin crossed with lemon, with plenty of heady floral top notes. It’s tricky, but not impossible, to buy fresh yuzu in the UK. In need of eggs ideas? We have 57 eggs recipes here.
