1. Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon Recipe


  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, thinly sliced
  • Fresh dill, for garnish (optional)


Whisk the eggs

In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until the yolks and whites are well combined. Add the heavy cream and season with salt and pepper. Continue whisking until the mixture is smooth and slightly frothy.

Heat the butter

In a non-stick skillet or frying pan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Make sure the butter coats the entire surface of the pan.

Cook the eggs

Pour the whisked egg mixture into the skillet with the melted butter. Allow the eggs to sit undisturbed for a few seconds until they start to set around the edges.

Scramble the eggs

Using a spatula or wooden spoon, gently stir the eggs from the edges towards the center in a slow and continuous motion. Continue to stir the eggs, breaking up any large curds that form, until they are mostly set but still slightly soft and creamy.

Add the smoked salmon

Tear the smoked salmon into smaller pieces and add them to the scrambled eggs. Gently fold the salmon into the eggs, ensuring it is evenly distributed.

Finish cooking

Cook the eggs with the smoked salmon for an additional minute or until the salmon is warmed through and the eggs are fully cooked but still moist. Be careful not to overcook, as the eggs can become dry.

Serve and garnish

Transfer the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon to serving plates. Garnish with fresh dill, if desired, for an added touch of freshness and flavor.


Serve the scrambled eggs with smoked salmon immediately while they are still warm and creamy. Accompany them with toasted bread or bagels, and perhaps a side of fresh fruit or a small salad, for a complete and satisfying meal.
