This recipe was inspired by the book The Weekend Cook.
To make the zucchini cakes, I shredded a zucchini (my Microplane was perfect for the task!), then squeezed the moisture out through a paper towel.
Then I mixed it with shredded Parmesan, an egg yolk, heavy cream, seasoning, and almond flour (the book uses quinoa flour so I switched this).
I prepared the scrambled eggs by combining eggs, cream, fresh chives and seasoning.
The book suggests making the zucchini cakes first then keeping them warm in the oven while you cook the eggs. I decided to skip the oven and cook everything at the same time! I started cooking the zucchini cakes first in an oiled saute pan, then flipped them over after five minutes and started scrambling the eggs. It worked out great!
To serve, I placed the zucchini cakes on a plate, egg over the top, then a piece of smoked salmon. Oh and a fancy chive garnish!
