Smoked salmon & scrambled eggs

Scrambled egg topped with smoked salmon

Serves 2

  • 30 g butter, plus a little extra for spreading

  • 6 large free-range eggs

  • 2 slices sourdough or crusty white bread, griddled or toasted

  • sea salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

  • 4 slices smoked salmon, from sustainable sources, ask your fishmonger

  • 1 lemon, quartered

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over a moderate heat until it's foaming. Whisk the eggs in a bowl and add to the saucepan. Stir the eggs continuously with something flexible like a spatula to get right into the corners, and cook until little pieces of cooked egg are surrounded by soft, smooth and still quite runny egg. The egg will continue to cook even when the heat is turned off, so undercook them slightly and leave them in the pan while you butter your toast. Season the eggs to taste and pour over the toast. Drape the salmon over the eggs and serve it with the lemon wedges. Add plenty of black pepper and serve immediately.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
