  8. Add the crème fraîche to the eggs, and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  9. Cook for a further 1 minute, stirring constantly, until the mixture is softly scrambled.
  10. Sprinkle the smoked salmon with the lemon juice, then add to the eggs together with the chopped dill.

  12. Place the toast on warmed serving plates and divide the smoked salmon scramble among them.
