Yet another semi homemade recipe from me to you. Egg scramble with smoked salmon is one easy to fix energizing breakfast. I have read and heard from a lot of health shows that having eggs for breakfast is the best way to start your weight loss journey.
For those of you who buy eggs in bulk, this is the test I recommend to check its freshness.This is what my friend taught me. Place the egg at the bottom of a glass and fill it with water until the rim and what what happens. I did this test today for fun and as I ran the experiment I was explaining the process to my son. Well, he was too cranky today and this was the only way to keep him engaged. It's practically not possible to carry the baby all day long. So, I buckled him in his high chair and gave a plastic spoon to play with and kept talking to him as if I was doing a presentation.
He smiled back and nodded his head as I finished my talk. Alright, coming to the point, what you will find is:
1. For fresh eggs: The egg will lie at the bottom on its side
2. For old yet edible one: Egg will partially sink
3. Throw them away, time for a new one if the egg floats
Remember the smoked salmon I bought from Costco the other day, I make lettuce wraps, sandwiches or omelets with it. The smoked salmon has loads of salt in it, about 20-23% of your daily requirement. So don't add any salt during the cooking. I prefer the ones smoked without any sugar (brown sugar). Look for the ones with zero sugar if you are in South beach diet. This is an ideal breakfast recipe for phase 1 dieters and for those in phase 2 and 3, you can enjoy it with a toast and any zero sugar juice. Egg scramble is an ideal breakfast food to fix for working mothers. You are just stuffing your little ones with good food and I am sure this is also a great dish to fix for anyone.
2 eggs - beaten (you can egg whites too)
1/4 cup onions - diced
1 garlic clove - minced
1/4 cup salmon - chopped
1 red chili - chopped
1 teaspoon extra-virgin oil
1. Heat a saucepan with oil. Once hot enough, add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds.
2. Add the onions and cook till they become translucent. Then mix in the salmon and red chili. Stir to combine.
3. Break open the eggs into the saucepan and stir to cook, about 3-5 minutes on medium flame or until done.
4. Sprinkle pepper to taste and combine.
5. Serve with a toast.
Since I prefer just the eggs for breakfast, I avoided the bread and to wash the spicy scramble down I drank Bolthouse farm organic carrot juice (It's really good, no added sugar - that's what I am looking for). Also I love to eat just smoked salmon with pepper too!
