    Smoked Salmon & Scrambled Eggs ... with a twist!

    Primal Fuel




    Potentially a weird combination, but I've made both halves of this dish many times before and they are both wonderful - put together, sublime!

    At the back, we have smoked salmon wrapped around slices of kiwi fruit and segments of pink grapefruit! In front, we have scrambled eggs.

    Creme Fraiche in the middle ...

    What a breakfast!

    Looks absolutely lovely!! A spoonful of caviar / lumpfish roe on the creme Fraiche would make it - for me - sublime!!!

    That's beautiful! I've tried lox in scrambled eggs, and even though I love each on it's own, the lox made the eggs too salty. But on the side like you did - fantastic.

    It's only six blocks to the nearest Jewish Deli. Maybe...

    I'm absolutely with you there ... alas, no caviar in. I don't mean that jokingly - we often have caviar in, and often have it with smoked salmon ... and Champagne.

    You're right ... mixed into eggs, the salmon can ruin both. Alongside, especially alongside citric and tart fruits, as well as the soothing creme fraiche ... too gorgeous! I'll be doing this again, as a duo ... all the bits worked together perfectly.

    Looks amazing!
    Any particularities concerning the grapefruit you've used (did you dip it in anything or just cut it in little slices and put it next to the smoked salmon?)
    Same question for the scrabbled eggs - any particular recipe that you've used?
    Thanks a lot
    Made me hungry :P

    The grapefruit was peeled with a sharp knife and then each segment removed by slicing along the thin membranes each side of the segment.

    The kiwi fruit was peeled with a potato peeler and sliced.

    What I did then was to take a slice of smoked salmon and weave it around pieces of grapefruit and kiwi, so that the fruit was woven into the fish. Repeat with a second piece of salmon ... and again, if you're really hungry.

    The scrambled eggs were gently warmed through in some goat butter, gently and carefully. I used four eggs for two of us - they are very large (the chicks up the road do seem to push of some monsters!), so perhaps three eggs per person with regular eggs.

    Just before they were about to fully cook through, I added a tablespoon of creme fraiche. This helps to slow the cooking right down while the residual heat in the pan fully cooks through. It also gives a very creamy scramble. I add some black pepper in at that point. No salt - the smoked salmon is salty enough.

    Thank you for the kind compliments. I am happy to have inspired.

    I should point out, the little jug is the juice from the grapefruit, squeezed from the remaining pith and pulp once the segments were removed.

    I should also say, the smoked salmon and fruit on its own is quite wonderful, better still with some red grapes; it makes a perfect primal dinner party starter. Or, just a fine little meal on its own.

    Grapefruits are quite in season and a very welcome pack of vitamin C through the winter. Furthermore, grapefruit has all manner of complexes in there making them quite the stand-out fruit!

    Paul, thanks very much, great insights and details about the procedure!
    Will try this asap, we have smoked salmon available here in stores (pre-packed), no need to go to big fish stores and buy fresh/uncooked salmon....that one i shall use for other creative recipes
