A savory and slightly smokey update on the classic scrambled eggs recipe. With smoked salmon and scrambled eggs together in one dish, it's healthy, filling, and colorful on your plate!
I have a lot of smoked salmon in the freezer that I just love to work with. I made a spinach and smoked salmon quiche a few weeks ago and it turned out fantastic, so of course, scrambled eggs was just a short step away.
The smokey, salty, fishy taste of this dish is perfect. I love salmon and with the fish working together with the eggs to create a create texture and flavor, scrambled eggs will never be the same for me, haha.
I love how simple and easy this dish is to throw together too! Hardly any extra time compared to normal scrambled eggs and it feels like a nice upgrade at the same time. Win-win.

🍴 Recipe Tips
Due to the fact that not all smoked salmon is created equal, I highly recommend either knowing the salmon you're using or waiting until the end to taste test and adjust salt and pepper to you're own preferences.
Some salmons can be rather salty whereas others can be much milder. Tasting before adjusting can save you from a salty side dish!
Absolutely! While it won't taste exactly the same, you can add in ¼ teaspoon of liquid smoke and 1 can of drained canned salmon (the one without bones). You could also just use ½ cup of leftover salmon from dinner the night before. 😉
