Home-Cured Salmon with Scrambled Eggs and Yarra Valley Salmon Caviar

Since, I can't afford Truffles to go with my eggs, like some people can, this is about as posh as my breakfasts will ever get in my house. As much as I love food and cooking, I can't see myself spending $50 on one breakfast. I'd rather spend $40 and have the Red Duck Curry at Pearl for dinner. So, here's my posh breakfast that I came up with with left overs from my weekend Ezard Challenge.
Basically just cook your scrambled eggs, with lots of cream of course and drape your perfectly cured salmon over the top. Sprinkle with some Yarra Valley Salmon Caviar and freshly chopped Chives and Bob's your uncle! I have to say, this is one indulgent breakfast. If you've never cured your own Salmon before, give it a shot. It's so easy and it takes about 36 hours while the Salmon is resting in the fridge. Lovely!

Looks great! I thought it must have been leftovers from the Ezard meal, because even you aren't going to go to that much preparation for brekkie!

How's the Salmon Caviar? Does it taste similar to the smoked salmon? Dying to try some.

Hi there,

I saw your profile at that other online networking place. And that led me to this blog. I was attacted to your profile because it was written so well. I like the fact you love food, love to cook, and also love to write. Oh, and that you love dogs. Dogs are awesome.

This blog is great, and when I'm not so tired I will read it in detail. Your pictures are really good. I haven't found very many Australian food blogs, but one I enjoy is chocolate and zucchini from France.

Just had to say my fave breakfast is scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. That's why I chose this blog entry to comment on.

Oh, by the way, my name's Carly, I am 25 and live in melbourne. I enjoy cooking, eating, great bands, making things, writing (I have written an article on molecular gastronomy for a university assignment), fashion and shopping.

Your profile and your blog were really nice to read.
