Step 1To Make Hollandaise:

Step 2Fill the bottom of a double boiler part-way with water.

Step 3Make sure that water does not touch the top pan.

Step 4Bring water to a gentle simmer.

Step 5In the top of the double boiler, whisk together egg yolks, lemon juice, white pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and 1 tablespoon water.

Step 6Add the melted butter to egg yolk mixture 1 or 2 tablespoons at a time while whisking yolks constantly.

Step 7If hollandaise begins to get too thick, add a teaspoon or two of hot water.

Step 8Continue whisking until all butter is incorporated.

Step 9Whisk in salt, then remove from heat.

Step 10Place a lid on the pan to keep sauce warm.

Step 11Preheat oven on broiler setting.

Step 12To Poach Eggs:

Step 13Fill a large saucepan with 3 inches of water.

Step 14Bring water to a gentle simmer, then add vinegar.

Step 15Carefully break eggs into simmering water, and allow to cook for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.

Step 16Yolks should still be soft in the center.

Step 17Remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon and set on a warm plate.

Step 18While eggs are poaching, put the salmon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat and toast the English muffins on a baking sheet under the broiler.
