    I'm having trouble finding a suitable title for this dish. Maybe I should just call it 'Sesame & Mushroom Deep-fried Eggs'. Anyway it worked out well. I was apprehensive that the mushroom coating on the eggs would somehow disintegrate into the frying oil but it didn't at all.



    For the deep fried egg:
    1 x softly boiled egg, peeled
    200g mushrooms
    Oil for frying the mushrooms
    1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
    White sesame seeds to coat
    Oil for deep frying

    For the salad dressing:
    1 tsp sumac
    Zest and juice of 1/2 a lime
    2 tsp olive oil
    1 tsp sesame oil
    1 tsp honey
    1/2 tsp English mustard
    Salt to taste

    For the salad:
    A handful of salad leaves
    2 slices of crispy cooked streaky bacon
    1x pickled walnut, sliced into rounds and drained well
    A little chilli sauce (I used sriracha)

    For the sesame seed soil:
    1/2 cup sesame seeds

    To prepare the deep fried egg:
    1. Finely chop the mushrooms and fry in a little oil until all moisture is cooked off. Allow to cool.
    2. Season the mushrooms with salt, pepper and 1/2 tsp garlic powder.
    3. Add the breadcrumbs and mix well.
    4. Carefully mould the the mixture around the egg.
    5. Roll the coated egg in the sesame seeds.
    6. Deep fry for 4 minutes and drain on kitchen paper.
    To prepare the salad:
    1. Place the salad dressing ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Set aside a little of the dressing
    2. Place the salad leaves in the bowl and turn until coated.
    To make the sesame soil:
    1. Dry roast the sesame seeds.
    2. Grind using a spice grinder until a fine powder is formed. It should be the consistency of slightly damp fine sand.
    To plate:
    1. Place a heap of salad leaves on a large plate. Scatter with pieces of crispy bacon and place the deep-fried egg on top.
    2. Arrange slices of walnut and a few pinches of sesame soil around the salad .
    3. Carefully spoon small amounts of the remaining dressing around the salad and drop a dot of chilli sauce in the centre of each.
