Scramble Eggs with Smoked Salmon @ Home


I couldnt take the niggling pain from my back and the next natural thing was to see a doctor and get MC. The doctor diagnosed stress muscles between the hip and the backbone although recently i have been getting scared with the story of how back pain relates to liver cancer. Maybe i am scaring myself, but i am seriously contemplating on doing a full body medical checkup.

So what do you do when you wake up and find you have nothing to eat? You naturally cook, and since it has been ages i stepped into the kitchen at 6am to make my sandwiches or my protein boost aka pan fry chicken breasts, i was abit puzzled about what to dish out to myself.

As you guessed it from the title and the picture above, i made scramble eggs and with the smoked salmon i managed to sneak into the family grocery trolley hehe..RM20 saved..phew..

I think this is one of the easiest dish to cook but one of the hardest to master, making sure all the eggs are sufficiently cook without getting hard and retaining moisture at the same time.. Being rusty, my eggs were more on the cooked side rather on the runny side..but somehow it wasnt very fluffy and instead felt very heavy.. Dear Master Chefs..help me out ok?

Doesnt this look scrumptious?? It is hehe..

Urgh... so shouldn't have seen that. Now I'll have to break for an early lunch. Hungreeee....

P.S. If it makes you feel any better, I totally suck at making scrambled eggs too. Mine get even more cooked than yours!

i not a scrambled eggs fan, but i saw on delia smith's how to cook, it needs to be really slow flame, and you need to continuously err, stir it with a light feathery touch. too delicate for me. give me good old sunny sides with runny yolks any day.

chicken nipples for protein heh heh.

babe_kl said...

must add milk/cream inside and then keep stirring and remove whilst its runny cos it will still be cooking.

hope yr back is better now.

anyway, I've come out with this year's Merdeka Open House topic, pls check Merdeka Open House 2007. Hope you can join the fun.

ah, scrambled eggs was something I survived on during my uni days. Yr sandwich looks like more salmon vs eggs though - really kah liu.

leo said...

ahah the classic =)

yours look alright u know... your eggs i mean.

i whisk the eggs with cream (minimum 40% fat content), freshly cracked black pepper and salt =) start with a cold pan and stir until desired consistency.

not a fan of smoked salmon though, i prefer gravlax.. which is super easy to do.

I'll put a recipe post up pretty soon. =)

Oh!! I miss smoked salmon. My family owns a restaurant. So we always stock up on salmon before cny for the yee sang.

That time, i will like eat smoked salmon alone at one corner with some thousand island sauce.

XP Damn nice! But of course, smoked is not as good as raw..

You know, when i worked in this restaurant (a long time ago), they had this S.O.P for scrambled eggs...add milk and put in the microwave for 2 minutes.. then 'scramble' it on the plate before serving.. *Bleh*
