Cook's notes Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified. Instructions 1. Place the crème fraiche and water in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Add the eggs, sea parsley, saltbush, pepper leaf and salt, then whisk until well combined. 2. Heat a frying pan over medium heat until very hot. Remove the pan from the heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Add the egg mixture and gently stir, letting the residual heat cook and set the eggs. Serve immediately with toasted sourdough and sprinkling of sea parsley. Note: • Mountain pepper leaf is also known as Tasmanian mountain pepper leaf or mountain pepper. Pepper berries come from the same tree. Available online from native food stores.
