I never tire of smoked salmon. I enjoy it so many different ways. Often when I have a craving for smoked salmon, yet feeling cheap at the same time Ill ask my deli guy John to save me the scraps. When I stop in a few days later he yells my name across the store.."Yo..I have your smoked salmon scraps..boy your cats are gonna eat well tonight!" I don't have a cat, I just thank him and immediately start dreaming about the most delicious breakfast Ill be enjoying when I get home.
I start by caramelizing onions in some butter, add a few mixed eggs and cream, when its just about done I add the chopped smoked salmon and some freshly ground pepper. Beyond delish. Today were not doing breakfast, were doing smoked salmon and arugula on toasted french bread. Goat cheese is spread on the toasted french bread then topped with the salmon and arugula. Not quite scrambled eggs, but and elegant appetiser that is sure to please.
