We don’t always realise how much potential seasoning has. Take salt, for instance. It’s in so many things that don’t necessarily involve a pinch straight out of the box. There are so many interesting seasoning mixes we can make to amp up the flavour but how often do we consider the texture of our salt fix. The “breakfast salt” in this recipe hits all the right notes, from a comforting Corn Flakes flavour infusion to a welcome kick of crunch.

for the smoked trout breakfast
Blend the All-Bran Flakes to a semi-fine breadcrumb consistency, and place in a bowl. Remove the skin and pip from the avocado and cut into cubes about 1.5 cm x 1.5 cm. Squeeze a generous amount of lemon juice onto the avocado cubes and season with the Kellogg’s Salt. Place a pot of water with lemon juice or vinegar in on the stove and add some salt. Bring the water to a gentle simmer and poach the eggs to the desired doneness. While the eggs are poacing start placing the salmon ribbons on the plate, and garnish with the avocado and black lumpfish roe. Place small dollops of the cream cheese on the plate and season with the Kellogg’s salt. Place the egg in the centre just before serving.
