How to make great scrambled eggs
OK so here it is after a little prompting!!
Caiplie House scrambled eggs and smoked salmon
On my breakfast menu at Caiplie House I call this Fit For a King and ramble on about monarchs and rivers a bit! Quite simply this is scrambled eggs and smoked salmon.
To make a nice portion for one person:
Take two medium sized free range eggs, a knob of butter and a splash of cream. Beat the mixture in a microwave proof jug or bowl. Blast for one minute and check and stir. Depending on the size of eggs and the knob of butter and splash of cream you may need another 15 secs.
You want to catch the eggs so there is still a little bit of liquid on the surface of the mixture. It should look like a teaspoonful of runny egg.
Start to fork the mixture out onto a warmed fish plate. For perfection the eggs should sit up on their own, not flop down (undercooked) nor crumble (overcooked). You want a shine to the eggs, you will be amazed how that last drop of moisture disappears.
I have been getting my smoked salmon from GJ Wilson in St Monans, awesome! They have their own kiln and smoke it to perfection. It is just smokey and oily enough without being overpowering. Shop around for a good supplier near you.
Place a rose of cold smoked salmon on top of your shiny scrambled eggs, you can be as artistic as you like but don’t let the eggs go cold !!
Sprinkle a little freshly cut parsley or a few chopped chives on top to finish it off.
Serve with a couple of slices of nice granary bread.
