I must confess I am not usually a sucker for supermarket deals, but I made an exception this week. Late on Thursday evening, I joined the throng of harried shoppers all desperately trying to complete that last-minute grocery shop before the supermarkets closed for the Easter celebrations. As I stood in the longer-than-usual checkout line at my local Coop Supermarket, I couldn’t help but notice the strategically placed smoked salmon on offer.
This was a half price offer on 600g of premium smoked salmon from Bell which came complete with a Salmon knife (which coincidentally, has been on my wish list for ever!). This caught my attention and it only took a few seconds for my brain to convince me that I had to have that salmon on offer, even though it was not on my meticulously prepared shopping list.
You have to understand that I don’t take deviations like this lightly, given my obsessions with lists, but I do have a fondness for salmon that sometimes overrides any rhyme or reason, and this was one such occasion.
So with a pantry stocked with Norwegian smoked salmon, I decided to celebrate Easter morning with eggs for breakfast – not the chocolate sort though.. Just sunny side up, with avocado, sour cream and smoked salmon.
This is my idea of culinary heaven. What’s yours?
Is this recipe right for you?
