This morning I craved Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon. Salty smoked fish tastes great with a big pile of creamy, fluffy scrambled eggs, especially when you add a little bit of coconut milk for that extra richness. Of course, the salmon also adds a lot of important nutrients to the mix – some extra B vitamins, minerals like selenium and iodine and those all-important Omega-3 fats. This is an elegant brunch option if you want something a little more striking than ordinary scrambled eggs, it even has chives! What isn’t fancier with little bits of chives sprinkled artfully through it?
Smoked salmon, lox, Nova lox. The difference between these terms can be a little confusing, but one thing is for sure… they all taste great! Lox refers to salmon that has been cured in a saltwater brine, while smoked salmon has become a somewhat generic term used to describe any salmon that has been cured and/or cold or hot smoked. According to purists, lox should always be made from salmon belly, which is the richest and most fatty area of the fish. Nova lox earned their name from Nova Scotia; they tend to be processed in a saltwater brine and cold smoked, differentiating them from plain old brined lox.
