Serves 2 for breakfast.

Ingredients:
200 grams smoked salmon sliced into small strips
4 free range large eggs
1 tablespoon crème fraiche
25 grams ice cold butter cut into small cubes
4 slices sourdough bread toasted
Freshly ground black pepper

Method:
Break the eggs into a cold non-stick saucepan. Add half the butter and using a wooden spatula stir the eggs constantly to combine. When the eggs begin to set add the remaining butter. After about 2 minutes when the mixture is beginning to reset, add the smoked salmon. The eggs should take about 5 minutes to scramble. Leave them soft and lumpy and don’t let them get too hot.
Add the crème fraiche stir, season and serve on the hot toast.

Smoked Salmon & Sliced Avocado with a Light French Dressing

Serves 4 as a starter

Ingredients:
350 grams sliced smoked salmon
2 ripe avocados (preferably Hass, they are easier to peel)
150ml white wine vinegar
80grams Dijon mustard
600ml sunflower oil
1gram freshly ground black pepper
4 grams sea salt

Method:
For the dressing: Whisk the mustard, vinegar salt & pepper together. Slowly pour in the oil and whisk until emulsified.

Cut the avocados in half, remove the stone and peel. Slice on a mandolin (if you own one) and place on a plate in a fan shape. Lay the smoked salmon slices on top and pour over the dressing. Finish with a few turns of the pepper mill and serve.

This makes plenty of dressing that you can keep in the fridge for 2 weeks.
