Spanish Scrambled Eggs

When combined with wasabi and smoked paprika mayo, these scrambled eggs really shine

Having been given this mayonnaise with wasabi and smoked paprika recipe, I figured I'd try it alongside Spanish scrambled eggs. I couldn't have anticipated better results.

Serves 2

½ cup good quality mayo
1 tsp smoked paprika
¼ tsp wasabi (or to taste)

4 eggs
¼ cup milk
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 Tbsp butter
½ spring onion, sliced thinly
½ cup chopped ham from the bone
1 Tbsp chopped chilli
¼ tsp smoked paprika
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
½ cup cherry tomatoes, lightly roasted

1. In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, paprika and wasabi.

2. In another bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Heat the butter in a frying pan. Add the spring onion, ham and chilli and cook for 2 minutes. Add the paprika then the eggs, cooking while stirring gently, until just set. Fold through the parsley and cherry tomatoes.

4. Serve with hot toast, the mayonnaise and a sprinkle of paprika.
