A recipe for Japanese Inspired Eggs Benedict with onigiri and a wasabi hollandaise. That is what we are making today. I will show you a quick and painless way to make a classic hollandaise without the double boiler or low heat water bath. We are gonna make this hollandaise in the blender and you will not believe how easy it is.

  Salmon filet 1 Medium (Grilled or broiled)
  Vinegar 1 Teaspoon (For poaching the egg)
  Chives 2 Teaspoon, chopped

2. Meanwhile in a heated pan melt a cup of butter.
3. Turn the blender to high and gradually add in the butter to make an emulsion. The Hollandaise sauce is ready.
4. Take 2 molded Onigiri (in the shape of English muffins) and toast it lightly over a heated pan till golden brown.
