I just wanted to add a couple of notes on smoked salmon: homemade brown bread, butter and a squeeze of lemon is certainly the simplest way to appreciate the full flavour of good smoked salmon, but I can't believe nobody has mentioned a sprinkling of cracked black pepper! Of course this is optional, but in my opinion raises the whole thing to a higher level

Smoked salmon and eggs can add a touch of luxury to any breakfast: either flake some into scrambled eggs, or create a smoked salmon omelette with thin slices.
