Salmon Scramble

    • Makes4 servings

An infinitely variable dish that is made up of whatever happens to be available at the time. If you don't have any salmon around, just try another protein.


  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 cup canned or smoked salmon, flaked

  • 8 eggs, beaten

  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, cut into small cubes

  • 1 tbsp parsley, or dill, chopped


  • Before you start cooking, have all the ingredients ready.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet. Add the chopped onion and cook, stirring, until golden, about 5 to 7 min. Add the flaked salmon and stir for 1-2 min, until hot. Then stir in the eggs and the cream cheese cubes and cook over medium heat until the eggs are scrambled and the cream cheese is melted. Don't overscramble: You should still be able to see clumps of cheese. Sprinkle with chopped parsley or dill and a light dusting of paprika. Serve immediately.
