Scrambled Eggs With Smoked Salmon

Serves 2

Good scrambled eggs hardly need anything added to them, but sometimes these are nice for a change, for brunch or for supper on the sofa.


  • 4 free range eggs, best quality possible
  • 4 tbsp milk (a little cream mixed with the milk is, of course, divine!)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 15g (1/2 oz butter)
  • 50-75g (2-3oz) smoked salmon, chopped (the trimmings are perfect)
  • 1 tsp chopped chives or parsley-optional


  1. Break the eggs into a bowl, add the milk and some salt (not too much as the smoked salmon can be salty)and pepper, and whisk for about 10 seconds.
  2. Put the butter into a cold saucepan, add the egg mixture and stir continuously with a wooden spoon over a low heat until the mixture looks scrambled but still soft and creamy. 
  3. Stir in the smoked salmon and chives, test for salt and pepper and serve!!
