Smoked Salmon Breakfast Bowl, an easy recipe featuring breakfast potatoes, rainbow chard, smoked salmon, paprika aioli, and a soft-boiled egg. This bowl is sure to brighten up your brunch!
The age old question: sweet or savory for brunch? I struggle with this every time, wanting to go sweet but knowing that a sugar bomb in the morning means I’ll be out of whack all day. But I also know that, for me, savory brunches are so much more satisfying.
Most mornings consist of simple scrambled eggs and toast, but occasionally I get an urge to go all out and whip up a delicious breakfast bowl with my all-time brunch favorites: smoked paprika skillet potatoes, smoked salmon, a spicy aioli, and a runny egg. Throw in some cooked greens for good measure and you have yourself a weekend treat!
Ready for a big, bold, and flavorful start to your day? Read on for how to make this Smoked Salmon Breakfast Bowl.
Smoked Salmon Breakfast Bowl: Tips, Tricks, and Tools
This Smoked Salmon Breakfast Bowl consists of a few simple ingredients that come together for a super flavorful final brunch dish.
- First, our favorite Smoked Paprika Skillet Potatoes are made in a cast iron skillet and then added to the base of the bowl.
- Then the rainbow chard is cooked with crispy garlic for a touch of greens (because a savory breakfast needs vegetables for good balance).
- Next smoked salmon, paprika aioli, and a soft-boiled egg top off this bold bowl. It’s great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner!
Recommended tools: Though any skillet will do, I highly recommend a cast iron skillet for the potatoes and the chard, as it will brown them both nicely and add flavor. A blender or food processor is also a great tool for making homemade aiolis, but is not necessary. Specific ingredients recommendations can be found at the links within the recipe below.
This Smoked Salmon Breakfast Bowl is a great choice for a weekend brunch, however can also be your go-to “breakfast for dinner” recipe!

Smoked Salmon Breakfast Bowl
- 2 eggs, soft-boiled (instructions below)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 3 cups rainbow chard (or other green), shredded
- 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 1 cup Smoked Paprika Skillet Potatoes
- 3 oz smoked salmon
- ¼ cup smoked paprika aioli (see recipe below)
Smoked Paprika Aioli (makes 1 cup)
- 1 cup mayo (we use vegan mayo)
- ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
- ⅛ teaspoon smoked sea salt
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Heat oil in a medium skillet on medium heat, then add garlic and fry until crisp, about 2 minutes. Add greens and cook until soft but not wilted, about 3-4 minutes.
- Build a bowl with potatoes, greens, smoked paprika aioli (instructions below), and salmon. Add soft-boil egg (instructions below) and enjoy!
- For paprika aioli: Add mayo, paprika, sea salt, and lemon juice to a food processor and mix until well blended. Alternatively, you can also combine the ingredients in a small bowl and mix by hand.
- For soft-boiled eggs: Bring three cups of water to a rolling boil and add eggs, cooking for five minutes. Drain and immediately add eggs to ice water to stop cooking. When they have cooled, dry, peel, and add to bowl.
- Leftovers and Storage: The contents of this breakfast bowl can be refrigerated for up to four days and be reheated in either a microwave or by stovetop. Undercooked eggs should not be saved (and will not provide the same runny center when reheated), so cook a new soft-boiled egg when reheating.
- Nutrition: This breakfast bowl recipe is a balanced meal with protein (eggs), carbohydrates (greens, potatoes), and fats (aioli, oil). It comes in at 550 calories, which is appropriate for a complete dish. It is moderately high in fat and has 5 grams of saturated fat. If watching fat intake, reduce the amount of aioli from 1/8 cup to 1 teaspoon or use vegan mayo to reduce the amount of saturated fat.
