Key Ingredients

  • Smoked salmon – When it comes to cold-smoked salmon, there are many types that are mostly distinguished by their region of source and the smoke style. Nova, Scottish salmon, Norwegian salmon, Irish salmon and Western Nova. Norwegian salmon usually has less oil and a mild flavor. Irish salmon is fattier with a milder smoke flavor. When it comes to scrambled eggs and salmon breakfast, you can use any kind of salmon. Although I prefer smoked salmon, even leftover salmon can be used in this breakfast quickie.
  • Eggs – Fresh eggs are best in this recipe; however you can substitute with liquid egg whites or liquid eggs as well.
  • Dill – An iconic pairing with salmon is dill. They go together like bread and butter.
