ALWAYS have a grown-up parent or carer with you when in the kitchen.
Being a big fan of Sushi I enjoy eating smoked salmon, & if you buy smoked salmon trimmings (£0.89p for 120g) from "Morrison's" it can make for a really cheap luxury ingredient ...that works out cheaper than a drained can of tuna for the same weight, without it coming from 1/2 way round the world ..Smoked (uk) salmon is mostly "farmed" in Scotland so it's possibly better for the planet & tuna is getting rare from over fishing (as well as other species often being caught in tuna nets ..such as turtles).
We tend to buy a few small packs at a time & pop one in the fridge the others in the freezer, it keeps well for quite a while without being defrosted.
Salmon is an OILY fish too so it's extra good for your body & brain, it has lots of flavour, dad puts it in fresh, warmed up onion bagels (Sainsbury's) or any bagel in fact, along with some cream cheese, (you've probably had cream cheese mixed in with pasta) & calls it "Lox" ..The word lox is derived from the Yiddish word for salmon, לאַקס (laks), which comes from the Indo-European word for salmon, laks...
I love having a slightly warmed salmon & cream cheese bagel for lunch, but below is scrambled egg with smoked salmon recipe I enjoy making & scoffing with my dad, ..tasty & good for you plus it'll see you through until lunchtime.
About 100g of sliced smoked salmon (or cheap salmon trimmings, which make it easier to eat)!
4 medium eggs ..or whatever you have in the cupboard..
20g of butter plus a bit more for the toasted bagel.
2 bagels ..onion /plain ..whatever you enjoy best!
Fine sea salt & freshly ground black pepper ....we like to use a mix of "maldons" salt because it's not strong (mixed in with herbs & peppercorns).
This makes a superb school or Sunday breakfast (if you just have it with toast) & is an anytime meal or brunch, you might have a simple way of cooking your scrambled eggs, (sometimes we do them in the microwave for simple speed!
Always try to get the salmon trimmings out & open first to warm up a little bit (more flavour) while you cook your eggs.
Grab a pyrex bowl & break your eggs into it.
Add the salt & pepper mix then whisk it by hand
Get a parent or helper to heat up a non-stick pan on a low heat & melt half your butter in it, when the butter bubbles pour the eggs in & start stirring with a wooden spoon...
Stick your bagels on to toast (or your toast) on NOW!
The egg mixture thickens as it cooks (gets hotter) & get lumpy, within a few minutes, just keep stirring it in on itself scraping the sides & the bottom of the pan (folding the egg over on itself).
when it looks about done, add in the rest of the butter & stir it in for another 15 seconds or so.
Butter your bagel or toast (quickly) & pop some salmon trimmings on..
Now spoon & spread some scrambled egg on top & you are done!
Enjoy it & let me know how you got on!Because Cubs CAN Cook!
If you don't like Smoked salmon then why not try some ham instead? ..a bagel is a solid type of bread (but like a ring doughnut in shape), & very filling, and has around 225 - 325 calories before you put anything on or with it, so can make a pretty good energy giving lunch, most are savoury & topped with mixed seeds or poppy seed, but some bagels are sweet such as raisin & cranberry... or raisin & cinnamon, ..delicous.
I also like to take plain bagels on a day out, because it's a bit doughy if it gets crushed in your pocket it's still pretty solid & satisfying to eat, so good for hikes too!
