This is actually one of our favorite meals to have for breakfast! 🌈

I first started to include fish in my breakfast when I was based in Russia working as a corporate flight attendant. At the time, I loved eating thin pancakes (Blini’s) with smoked salmon and buckwheat porridge.

That would help sustain me for quite a while and my day was always better when I started off with a good source of energy, especially with a physically demanding role.

The absolute best part of that job for me was trying new foods native or popular in the countries that I visited.
