Protein-packed smoked salmon breakfast idea

Protein-packed smoked salmon breakfast idea

Looking for a quick, easy breakfast? This protein-packed smoked salmon breakfast idea is so simple, any klutz could make it.

Like most people, I get a bit fed up with typically healthy breakfasts: porridge, yoghurt, fruit … and this smoked salmon option makes a nice change.

Smoked salmon is quite rich, so it’s not for every day, but it’s a delicious dish that requires zero serious cooking.

Nutritionally, it packs 16g of protein, good fats, and contains the latest superfood: bee pollen – supposedly packed with amino acids and trace minerals.

A portion is just 190 calories too.


2 cups spinach
120g good quality smoked salmon
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 raw beetroot
juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp bee pollen (optional)


Shred the spinach and divide between two bowls.
Cut up the salmon into strips and lay on top.
Peel and grate the beet and split between the dishes.
Drizzle with olive oil (1/2 tbsp each) and a squeeze of lemon.
Sprinkle with bee pollen.

And that’s it!
