   serves 2

 

  1. Place two of the eggs in a small pan and cover with cold water. Slowly bring to the boil, then simmer for 6 mins. Drain, cool in cold water, tapping the shells all over to peel away the shell.
  2. While eggs cook, sauté the pancetta in a dry frying pan for 4mins or until the fat has run and the pancetta is crisp. Blanch the peas in boiling water for 1 min, then drain and cool. Drain, then mix with the shallots, chicory leaves, rocket and pancetta.
  3. Beat the remaining egg and pour into a shallow bowl. Place the flour and breadcrumbs on two separate plates. Roll the boiled eggs in the flour, then the beaten egg and finally the breadcrumbs. Repeat until both the eggs are thoroughly coated. Deep fry for 1-2mins or until the crumbs are golden and crisp. Drain on kitchen paper.
  4. Finally make the dressing by whisking all the ingredients together. Divide the salad between two plates. Place the fried eggs in the centre of each then spoon a little dressing around the salad and plate of each. Serve straight away.
