Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon – yum!

INGREDIENTS

  • 75g butter, softened
  • 2 tsp tomato purée
  • 2 tbsp chopped dill, plus a few fronds to garnish
  • 2-3 tbsp capers, well drained and roughly chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices Mediterranean-style bread with olives, approximately 2cm (¾in) thick, cut diagonally
  • 5 large eggs, beaten
  • 100g packet MSC certified pacific or organically farmed smoked salmon or smoked trout slices, cut into thin strips
  • 1 beefsteak tomato, deseeded and diced, to garnish (optional)

METHOD

1. Put 50g (2oz) of the butter into a small bowl, then add the tomato purée, chopped dill and capers. Season with black pepper, then mix well together and set aside.

2. Toast the bread and keep warm. Melt the remaining butter in a small saucepan (preferably non-stick), add the eggs and half of the salmon strips. Then cook over a moderate heat, stirring continuously, until the eggs are softly scrambled – taking care not to overcook, as they will become dry.

New Years Resolutions – EAT MORE FISH!!!

It’s a brand new year. Have you promised yourself that this year you will eat better and exercise more? Even with good intentions it can be hard to stick to your New Year’s resolutions. That’s why we’ve come up with five sensible healthy eating goals that can make this year your healthiest one yet.

 

Resolution #1: Eat more fish

It is recommended that we eat two servings of fish every week (that’s about 1 cup). Fish is an excellent source of protein, low in saturated fat and a source of omega 3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty acids help keep your heart healthy and help babies in normal brain and eye development.

Some fish have high levels of mercury which can be a health concern. So it’s important to choose fish that are both high in omega- fatty acids and low in mercury. Eating a variety of fish is another good way to keep down mercury levels.

Here are some examples of low mercury fish: salmon, herring, sardines, char, Atlantic mackerel and rainbow trout.

Some types of fish are very high in mercury, such as fresh or frozen tuna, swordfish and orange roughy. Limit how much you eat of these fish to 1 cup (150 g) per week. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, do not consume more than 1 cup (150 g) of high mercury fish per month.

Selection of Seafood

Here’s how to put this resolution into action:

1)      Wrap any type of white fish in parchment paper along with vegetables and herbs and bake in the oven. The fish will pick up the flavours from the veggies and will be moist and tender.

2)      Mix salmon with an egg and breadcrumbs to make mini patties, and serve with low fat sour cream or yogurt and dill dip.

3)      Play around with different flavours. Try lemon, garlic, dill, orange-ginger, teriyaki or soy sauce.

Happy New Year!!!
