IMG_6560Place the sweet corn tamales in a steamer basket and steam for 16-18 minutes or until warmed through. While the tamales are steaming, prepare the eggs.

Fill a small saucepan with water and a splash of red wine vinegar. Bring to a boil. Crack one egg into a small bowl and gently slide the egg into the boiling water and immediately remove the pan from the heat. Let it sit for 4 minutes. Remove egg and drain on a paper towel or pat dry with a paper towel. Bring the water back to a boil and repeat with the second egg.

Once the tamale is cooked through, place it in the center of a plate or large bowl. Sprinkle with feta, cilantro, and scallions. Place the poached egg on top of the tamale and finish with a little maldon salt, freshly cracked black pepper, and olive oil.
