If you had to ask me what my go-to brunch order is - it always involves smoked salmon!!
Whether it’s a smoked salmon bagel, smoked salmon eggs benedict (a personal fave!) or these melt-in-your-mouth Smoked Salmon Breakfast Toasts, there’s just something about smoked salmon that makes you feel like you’re enjoying a fancy, delicious, indulgent meal.
I’ll be honest though, I don’t typically reserve smoked salmon just for “brunch” formalities (and neither should you!).
When it comes to reaching my fitness goals, there’s nothing easier than buying a family-sized smoked salmon that you can use for your daily weekday breakfasts by whipping up this simple recipe. It takes about 5 minutes to prepare, tastes absolutely delicious, and has a whopping 39g protein per serving. Not to mention, salmon is filled with essential fatty acids that are necessary for brain, hormone and nervous system support.
I’d call that a breakfast of champions if I do say so myself.
A few tips:
Choose a freshly made loaf with a crusty exterior and toast until it’s crunchy and golden. This will prevent the greek yogurt from softening the bread and making it soggy by the time you’re halfway through. Of course, you can always choose whatever bread you prefer - a higher protein bread, gluten-free, etc - but I find that a Tuscan loaf is my favourite texture and flavour.
I like to place each slice of bread onto a parchment-lined baking sheet (like this one!) to help catch all the crumbs from the toppings - like capers, sea salt, lemon juice and fresh dill. It makes for a more mess-free prep and the presentation looks phenomenal if you’re serving to a crowd.
