A Favorite Lunch, Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon and Fresh Parsley.





This could of course, just as easily be my favorite supper. Packed with flavor and protein it fills you up, satisfies your taste buds and for some absurd reason makes me feel sophisticated when eating it. I don't know why, after all my ten old loves this and the Jack Russell Terrier begs for the scraps. I've always adored smoked salmon and with plenty of parsley from the garden and freshly ground black pepper, you just can't go wrong. Plus, you have the added bonus that it takes five minutes to make. Serve with a piece of wholewheat toast and a glass of chilled Perrier with a slice of lime. Heaven.





To serve 1;

3 large eggs, whisked

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
A good grinding of fresh black pepperA touch of sea salt
A couple of sprigs of fresh parsley
A slice or two of smoked salmon, torn into sheds

Heat the butter in a NON STICK frying pan. Chop the parsley very finely. Whisk the eggs, salt and pepper together.

When the butter has melted add the eggs to the pan. Leave for a minute, then take off the heat and stir a little. Place back on the heat and add the salmon and parsley, cook for another minute, then take off and stir again. The eggs should be cooked but not dry.

Toast a piece of wholewheat bread and cut into triangles. Garnish with a small sprig of parsley and serve.

  4. Although I have now been a vegetarian for many years, I have enjoyed this dish in the past. I recall my brother making it for me one Christmas Day when I was recovering from pneumonia. It was the first thing I had eaten in days, and was just the right thing to get me on my feet again!

  8. Yes, I join the chorus of enthusiasm for eggs with salmon. If you want to try making gravlax at home (less expensive than smoked salmon, and very easy to accomplish) go to http://theobsessivechef.blogspot.com and enter "gravlax" into the search field. I'm about to make another batch next week for a dinner I will cater.

  22. Oh Fantastic! We often have this for brunch on Saturdays, and chives work well too. Perfect with a Buck's Fizz, or Mimosa as you call it in the states.
    I just love recipes that work for all three main meals. A splendid breakfast, a perfect lunch or delightful supper!
