1 teaspoon salt

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1½ tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

1½ tablespoons chopped chives

40 thin baguette slices, rubbed with olive oil and toasted

¼ cup finely shaved bottarga (salted, pressed, dried mullet roe)

Freshly ground pepper

Lemon wedges for serving

In a large bowl, beat the eggs with¼ cup of oil and the salt. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the remaining ¼ cup oil with 1 tablespoon of the butter over very low heat. Add the egg and cook, stirring with a rubber spatula and gradually adding the remaining 4 tablespoons butter, until soft, creamy and just beginning to form curds, about 12 minutes. Fold in the parsley and chives.

Spoon the eggs onto the toasts and top with the shaved bottarga. Season with pepper and serve warm with lemon wedges.

Cook's note: The cooked eggs can be kept warm in a bowl set over a pot of hot water for up to 30 minutes.
