Irish Smoked Salmon and Scrambled Eggs Recipe

This recipe is easily the easiest and one of the tastiest ways to get a vitamin boost into your week. It contains Irish Smoked Salmon, Irish Free Range Eggs, Brown Bread and Butter. A simple dish but tasty and very effective.

Let’s break it down … Salmon is packed with protein and vitamins including Vitamin B12, add to that the fact that it is a natural source of Omega-3 fatty acids which we all need more of in our diet, make it Irish and organic and it really is a ‘Super Fish’. Free Range Eggs are full of protein, iron and vitamins. Brown Bread depending on its ingredients can be a much healthier option to white bread and be a source of the fibre your body needs, the whole grains used are also sources of vitamins including Vitamin E which is great for your immune system and your skin. Finally add some Butter, which up until recently had a bad reputation but is now the saviour of spreads because it is rich in Vitamin A, D and E.

This meal is quick to prepare in the morning for breakfast – It would make a tasty alternative to the Irish Fry we have all indulged on, on a lazy weekend or even on Christmas morning. It’s great for lunch, a quick and easy dish to serve before dinner or even as an evening meal … which satisfied my belly this evening.
