Hot-smoked Salmon Omelette (Keto)

This is a rich and filling omelette where I simply combined broken up pieces of hot-smoked salmon, soured cream and the all-important dill. I marked this under the breakfast category, but I think its suitable for any time of the day! Yum!

Calories: 535kcal | Carbohydrates: 2.9g | Protein: 31g | Fat: 44g


  • 85 g (3 oz) fillet of hot-smoked salmon, skins removed
  • 4 TB soured cream
  • generous handful fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 4 large eggs, whisked
  • 40 g (1.4 oz) double cream
  • salt and ground white pepper
  • 40 g (1.4 oz) Gruyere cheese, finely grated
  • 2 tsp unsalted butter


  • Break up the hot-smoked salmon pieces into a bowl. Add the soured cream and a generous amount of the beautifully fragrant chopped dill. Mix well to evenly combine.
    (I do not discard the skins, I eat them while I am prepping! Sometimes I slip some to my pooches. This is up to you, but I personally don't want them in this omelette mix).
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the double cream into the whisked eggs. Season the mixture with salt and ground white pepper. While you are prepping, grate the Gruyere cheese on the finest (smallest) setting. This is what you will have ready:
  • Make one omelette at a time. As with any egg or batter, use your best-quality, non-stick (non-scratched!) pan and melt one teaspoon of butter over moderate heat. Once foaming, pour in half the egg mixture and allow to swirl evenly around the pan.
    After a few minutes, you will notice the edges lifting (and a spatula slid underneath will go in effortlessly). Scatter half the grated cheese onto one side and cover the cheese with half the hot-smoked salmon mixture.
  • Turn the undressed half over the dressed half and leave for about a minute to finish cooking and warm through. Slide the omelette off, setting aside to keep warm while you repeat the process with the remaining butter, remaining egg, remaining cheese and remaining salmon mixture. TOO DELICIOUS!
