Fish eggs for breakfast anyone?

I live in Paris where bakeries are full of richly buttered croissants, but to be brutally honest, I eat a croissant approximately once a year! Shocking, isn’t it.

Originally, I come from Finland, which is a country of savory breakfasts, but I don’t eat typical Finnish breakfast (porridge) either. So, what is it, what do I eat? Well, I often have rice cakes with salmon and avocados. Or avocados and cheese. Sometimes I add turkey. Or if I made Indian food the night before, I would eat leftover dal for breakfast. To be honest, my ultimate happiness was found in South India where I could eat idli and sambar for breakfast! Yummy.

I do admit, I have weird breakfast habits but I am afraid they are now getting even more strange (some of you may call them disgusting). For some time now, I have been preparing a salad that consists of fish eggs, grilled artichokes, avocados, truffle oil and fresh herbs (thyme, basil and rosemary). fish egg, avocado and artichoke saladThe fish eggs I have been buying are some of the cheapest available in Paris (and apparently the saltiest) and of course it would be better to buy salmon eggs but they are considerably more expensive. Anyhow, apart from these “cheap” eggs, everything in this salad is very good for your health. Most importantly, I love the combination, which fills the stomach, but not the same way wheat does (yes, I try to avoid gluten as often as I can).

Would you eat this salad for breakfast? Do you have a breakfast recipe you like making but think it is utterly crazy? Let me know (and make me feel less weird..)!

    It is always interesting to see what others are eating during their morning routine. I love fish eggs ontop of sushi rolls… so perhaps I’d be okay with this form as well. I typically eat eggs, or oatmeal, or greek yogurt drizzled with honey and fruit … or the occasional peanut butter toast or jam.

      I seem to have phases… There was a period when I had Greek yogurt with nuts and honey. But I find it difficult to find quality Greek yogurt that tastes like the real thing!

      Agree! But I try not to start filling my stomach with coffee in the morning, but unfortunately it is often the first thing I eat/drink as I wake up (like today).

    I always start my day with a bowl of fresh orange and grapefruit in their juices, I find it so refreshing! Sometimes I’ll add muesli/granola and vanilla yogurt but if I’m feeling like I need some stodge of a weekend, a full English Breakfast is a must!

      I sometimes have freshly squeezed lemon juice with honey as the first thing in the morning, but I try not to have fruits in the morning (suggested by my nutritionist).
