Pepper Crusted Salmon Scramble

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced finely
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 filet of pepper crusted smoked salmon*
  • salt & pepper
  • baby arugula

*not the thin sliced kind you use for lox and bagel, but the filet kind. Preferably one that’s already pepper crusted. Otherwise just add more pepper when scrambling.

Caramelize onions in a pat of butter over high heat. Beat eggs in a bowl, add onions and salmon. Break salmon up into pieces. Reduce heat to medium and pour egg mixture back into pan to scramble. Salt and pepper to taste. When no longer runny, but NOT cooked all the way through, add a handful of arugula to a large plate and spoon over eggs. I find the soft scramble texture is a better compliment to the salmon. Otherwise you get dry fish and dry eggs. yuck. Also, other greens would work but arugula itself is nice and peppery and has more of a kick than just plain spinach etc.
