Cut the sheet of puff pastry into four equal squares.

Bake on a parchment-lined cookie sheet until golden brown and puffed. This takes about 15 minutes.

While the puff pastry is baking, poach the eggs. The simplest way to poach eggs is to fill a saucepan about  2/3 full with water. Drizzle some olive oil in the water and bring the water to a good simmer (not a rolling boil).

Carefully crack the eggs right into the water and poach for about 1 1/2 – 2 minutes. Then remove from the simmering water with a slotted spoon.

Keep them in a small dish until you’re ready to place them on the puff pastry.

When the puff pastry squares are baked, top them with one slice of smoked salmon each.

Then top each one with a poached egg.
