Ingredients

  • quail eggs 9
  • sourdough 1 thick slice, cubed

  • parmesan 25g, finely grated
  • Greek yoghurt 1 tbsp

  • olive oil 2 tbsp

Method

  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the quail eggs and boil for 3 minutes, then drain and put into cold water to stop them cooking.

  • Step 2

    Toss the sourdough cubes with 2 tsp olive oil and some seasoning on a baking tray, put in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden and crisp.

  • Step 3

    Put the crushed garlic clove and anchovies in a mortar and crush together with a pestle. Add the parmesan, yoghurt, olive oil and lemon juice, and mix together with a little pepper. Peel and halve the quail eggs.

    Separate the Little Gem leaves and roughly tear, then pile on a platter with the other leaves, quail eggs, the sourdough croutons, smoked salmon, capers and chives. Spoon over the dressing and toss together gently
