  • Makes 1 serving
  • Prep Time 10 minutes
  • Cook Time 15 minutes


  • 3 large organic eggs
  • ¼ cup cottage cheese
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
  • 2 oz. hot-smoked salmon
  • ½ tbs. butter
  • 1 tbs. chopped fresh dill


Add eggs, cottage cheese, and salt and pepper to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and lightly frothy. Break salmon into small pieces and stir into the egg mixture.
Preheat a skillet to medium-low heat and add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the egg mixture to the skillet and cook, stirring frequently with a rubber spatula, until the eggs are just beginning to set, about five minutes.
Add the fresh dill and cook until the eggs reach a soft scramble — there should be little to no visible liquid in the pan.
Serve immediately.
