A couple of days ago, someone was talking about eggs, and that was it. I needed to have eggs for dinner. I remember as a child I would sometimes have eggs for dinner, with chopped up ham, or even chopped up hot dog. But as an adult, I crave something a little more sophisticated with my eggs. So, smoked salmon and spring onion it was.
Simple, sophisticated, comforting. It was just what I needed, and it took about 5 minutes to make. Now ain’t that grand?
Obviously a dinner this simple has to have the best quality ingredients. You really can’t hide any of them under a sauce or anything, so I got some fresh free range organic eggs and spring onions.
Isn’t my chopping board cute? I have specific chopping boards for all my food.
And obviously, a great loaf of crusty bread……yum. What a great dinner.
So here’s what you’re going to need:
2 spring onions, light and white parts only, minced
2 tbsp of butter
1/4 cup smoked salmon
Salt and Fresh ground pepper to taste
In a large non-stick frying pan, add one tablespoon of butter, melt over medium heat. Add the spring onions and cook, until tender, about 5-6 minutes. In the mean time, crack you eggs in a bowl, whisk until scrambled, and add the salt and pepper. When the onions are tender, add the egg and lower the heat. With a wooden spoon, start to curdle your eggs, adding the rest of the table-spoon of butter chopped into pieces. When the egg is cooked but still a bit wet (I like mine creamy), switch off the heat and add the smoked salmon.
