  3. Once it's hot and melted, open the egg in the center of the frying pan and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Then pour half a teaspoon of water into a zone of the frying pan where the egg is not on and cover the pan.
  5. Let it cook for one minute and remove it with a spatula.
  6. The water will produce moisture inside the covered frying pan, which will help cook the top of the egg.
  7. The yolk will have a thin white layer on top, but inside  it will remain liquidy and creamy.
