Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs—Succulent smoked salmon and scrambled eggs served on a warm wholegrain toast and topped with fresh chives. This healthy and easy salmon and eggs recipe is ideal for breakfast or Sunday brunch.
I like to eat salmon, and I try to make my children love eating it too. It has countless benefits, and it is probably the only fish that I would eat raw in a sushi roll, or smoked with scrambled eggs or cream cheese, or even cooked with whatever sauce and accompaniment I like it with.
This Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs recipe is so tasty and incredibly fast to make.
The succulent, salty and tender salmon slices combined with creamy and soft scrambled eggs over a crunchy wholegrain toast is absolute heaven. I add some chopped fresh chives to it for an extra layer of crunch and freshness.
What Kind of Salmon to Use with Eggs
There are many good brands in the market that sell really good quality, wild caught fresh and smoked salmon.
Find a good quality smoked salmon that you like or tried before to use with this recipe. I like to use wild ocean rather than farm raised salmon.
Wild ocean salmon has an overall better nutrition profile than farm raised salmon as the fish live and grow in their natural habitat compared to those in controlled farm conditions.
This is a rather simple recipe that requires few ingredients: eggs, butter, milk, salmon, chives, some seasoning and a slice of wholegrain bread.
How to Prepare Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs
Start by melting your better in a skillet on medium heat until it foams. While the butter is melting, scramble the eggs in a bowl with the milk and some salt and pepper.
Add the eggs to the butter and cook for 3 minutes stirring constantly with a spatula or wooden spoon, scraping the bottom of the skillet and bringing the eggs from the outside to the center. When the eggs form soft, creamy curds and can hardly sit, then they are done.
Turn off the heat and add your thinly sliced smoked salmon and freshly chopped chives and mix gently with the eggs. Pile over a warmed or crispy wholegrain toast bread on a serving plate, sprinkle with some freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.
