Fish for breakfast? In Ireland, indeed we do.
Okay, so the avocado is a very recent addition to this traditional recipe, but it’s a good one, hence why it’s on the list. Traditionalists may leave off of the avocado and just go for the salmon and scrambled eggs. Another variation of this recipe uses poached eggs instead of scrambled eggs.
- Eggs – roughly 2-3 per person
- Thinly sliced Irish salmon
- Bread of your choice – sliced
- Oregano / mixed herbs / pepper for seasoning
- Lemon slice
Start off by mashing the avocado in a small bowl.
Next, whisk your eggs with herbs/seasoning – for extra creamy eggs, stir in a few tablespoons of milk or even creme fraiche. Melt Irish butter in a pan, adding in the egg mixture. Stir routinely and cook until soft. Keep warm.
Finally, find the toast of your choice. Though toasting is the easiest way, next time try grilling the bread for a better flavour! Paint with olive oil and grill on each side in the pan until golden brown.
Once done, spread the avocado onto the bread. Add the scrambled eggs, then top with the fresh Irish salmon. Season with salt/pepper to taste. Use lemon slice to squeeze lemon juice over the top, and voila!
