A little bit of midweek luxury
Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs is not one of these dishes. In days gone by, I'd add a knob of butter to the pan before throwing in the eggs but I've found a similar creaminess can be achieved by stirring through a spoonful of extra light soft cheese at the end. And because the salmon itself is naturally rich and oily I don't think the dish is any the less.
It's moved from being the exclusive preserve of breakfasts to being a favourite, quick and easy midweek supper nowadays and I have to say, I always look forward to it. Tonight, two large double yoker eggs and a generous (60g) portion of smoked salmon finished in the pan with a tablespoon of Philly piled on top of a slice of wholemeal toast came in at a very reasonable 7.5 points. I feel satiated but I also feel like I've had a real naughty treat, and there are points left in the bank! A very good end to the day.
