2 serving


  • 4 large eggs

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat milk

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • Pinch of salt

  • 2 teaspoons grapeseed oil or avocado oil

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot

  • ½ cup boned and flaked smoked trout (1 1/2 ounces)

  • 1 cup chopped spinach


  1. Whisk eggs, milk, pepper and salt in a medium bowl until pale yellow throughout.

  2. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until starting to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the egg mixture and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, undisturbed, until the edges start to set, about 30 seconds. Sprinkle trout over the eggs. Using a rubber spatula, gently push and fold the eggs until fluffy and barely set, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in spinach. Remove from heat, cover and let stand until the spinach is just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
