Add the smoked salmon as soon as the centre starts to set

This meal can of course be made with shop-bought hot-smoked salmon, but it's even nicer if you have your own smoker; just smoke normal salmon fillets for about an hour. I then leave them in the cold smoker for about an hour once the briquettes have burnt and it's then perfectly cooked.

Method

  1. Add a few grinds of black pepper to the hot pan and add the butter.
  2. Beat the eggs and season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  3. Heat the butter in a frying pan until it starts to foam.
  4. Pour in the eggs and use a fork to pull the cooked edges into the middle of the pan.
  5. Once the omelette begins to solidify, spoon the salmon flakes into the centre. My salmon was cooked (and warm) by the hot smoking process I used, if using shop-bought smoked salmon, you might want to warm it slightly first.

Serving suggestions

Fold the omelette on itself, cut into two pieces and serve immediately, garnished with the chopped chives.

Variations

I used some chopped left over spring onions because my home grown chives have finished for this year.
