Scandinavian Breakfast - with Smoked Salmon and Dill

Prep Time: 10 Mins             Cook Time: 5 Mins            Total Time: 15 Mins


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp of vinegar
  • Enough water to submerge your eggs
  • 2 slices of wild salmon
  • Grass fed butter
  • Fresh sprigs of dill
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 slice organic whole wheat sourdough bread or half of an Ezekiel english muffin (if you’re not eating bread, try a corn tortilla)


  1. Crack the eggs in two separate bowls. Bring a small sauce pan with water to a gentle boil then add vinegar and salt. Slide one egg in followed by the other. Cover the pot, turn off the heat and let cook for 3 minutes.
  2. While your eggs are cooking, toast your sourdough bread. After toasting, spread a little bit of grass fed butter on top.
  3. With a slotted spoon remove your poached eggs from the pot and place on top of the bread flowed by your slice of wild smoked salmon. Sprinkle salt pepper and dill on top and enjoy.
