A Scandi Detox Breakfast 1

A Scandi Detox Breakfast

Recipe from British Lion Eggs |

This Scandi option is packed with nutrition. Cysteine in the eggs helps break down acetaldehyde  – a nasty by-product produced during alcohol metabolism. With smoked salmon and avocado, you’re also getting plenty of good fats, especially Omega-3. Potassium from the avocado also helps replace that which is lost through alcohol’s diuretic effect.

Serves Two


½ red onion, diced
100g of cooked new potatoes, halved
2tbsp of capers (optional)
1 vine tomato, halved
1 clove of garlic, sliced
25g of butter
2 large British Lion eggs
100g of smoked salmon
1 small avocado, sliced
25g of toasted breadcrumbs
2tbsp of dill, chopped
Sour cream, lemon and sourdough toast to serve


  1. In a large frying pan fry the onion in butter for three minutes. Add the potatoes and cook for six minutes until they are crisp and golden. Fold in the capers and then push the contents of the pan to one side.
  2. Cut the tomatoes in half, season well, brush with oil and then add a few slices of garlic. Cook the tomatoes, in the same pan, face down for six minutes and then push them to one side.
  3. In the same pan, fry the eggs for about four minutes until they are cooked but the yolk is still runny, then remove the pan from the heat.
  4. Finally make two rosettes from the salmon and add them to a space in the pan with the sliced avocado, breadcrumbs and chopped dill.
  5. Serve with sour cream, sourdough toast and a squeeze of lemon.

Why are eggs so great?

  • They contain the mighty cysteine, an amino acid which alleviates nausea, headache, and even stress and anxiety by breaking down acetaldehyde, one of the worst by-products of alcohol metabolism.
  • They’re also packed with vitamin D, vitamin B1, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, selenium and zinc.
  • Being protein-dense means they keep you fuller for longer, beating those munchies we fight off with unhealthy snacking.
  • And people are getting on board. New research shows a fifth of people would choose scrambled eggs on toast to cure a hangover
  • 34 per cent of people think a fry up is the best cure, which is more than the 30 per cent that think headache pills are!
