“This recipe is from Australian Good Food June 2010. I tried it for a late evening snack and loved it, so I wanted to put it on here for safe keeping. It's a modern Australian twist on an old English classic, adding the flavours of coriander (cilantro) and tangy salsa. I think the poached egg on top also makes it a bit Asian. Yum!”
