- Viewers Left Unimpressed By Nigella's Groundbreaking 'Recipe'...
- Nigella Lawson's Most Groundbreaking Recipes
The TV chef caused a stir as she presented her take on a Caesar salad on Monday (16 November) night’s edition of her show ‘Simply Nigella’.
And while the well-known dish is traditionally made up of fresh lettuce leaves, croutons, chicken, anchovies, Parmesan shavings and a white dressing, Nigella’s version was rather different.
She served up half a baked lettuce, sprinkled with anchovies and a fried egg on top, complete with a piece of toast.
Needless to say fans were not impressed, and the recipe caused quite a stir on Twitter.
As if Nigella is roasting some lettuce, putting a fried egg on top and can have the audacity to call it "delicious" #SimplyNigella— Kyle (@kyleio_) November 16, 2015

Sorry but how does nigella have a career? She just spent 5 minutes showing how to fry an egg and place it on a piece of lettuce— izzy (@IzzyEnglish) November 16, 2015
Nigella’s latest bizarre concoction comes just weeks after she was criticised for serving up avocado on toast on the show, which proved somewhat too pared down for some appetites.
‘Simply Nigella’ continues next Monday at 8.30pm on BBC Two.
