Hot Smoked Salmon Frittata.

I love frittatas. They're so quick to put together, you can use whatever you've got in the fridge, they're a great way to use up leftovers and they don't take a long time to cook.


I bought some hot smoked salmon this week but I wasn't sure how I was going to use. Then, when I was preparing to make a veggie frittata, I opened the fridge, saw the salmon and a lightbulb lit up...smoked salmon frittata!! Smoked salmon & eggs are like best friends and I just knew they would be perfect in a frittata. The rest is history!


Hot smoked salmon is the fillet of salmon that has been smoked rather than the thinly sliced pieces which are cold smoked. The hot smoked salmon was perfect for a frittata because it can be broken up into pieces. Hot smoked trout can be used here too. Both fish are an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids which are excellent for a number of health conditions due to their anti-inflammatory actions.




RECIPE

I made this for 3 lunches but you can double this recipe if serving for more people.


Ingredients

- 6 eggs (with 6 eggs I know that I'm getting 2 eggs per serving)

- 1/4 cup Greek or natural yoghurt + a few extra spoonfuls

- 1-2 garlic cloves

- A small bunch of dill

- A big handful of spinach

- 75 g hot smoked salmon


Method

- Preheat your oven to 200 C

- Whisk the eggs and yoghurt together

- Finely chop the garlic and dill then mix them into the eggs

- Ok, now...you can use whatever oven dish you like for a frittata. Traditionally frittatas are round, I often use a square dish but today I used a large bread tin so that the frittata was thicker. Use whatever you prefer

- Place the spinach on the bottom of the dish then crumble the salmon into bite sized pieces & place on top of the spinach

- Pour the egg mix over the top

- Spoon some extra yoghurt on top in blobs (for extra creaminess & aesthetic reasons!)

- Add a few more dill fronds on top to make it look pretty

- Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes for a thinner frittata in a larger dish and up to around 25 minutes for a thicker frittata in a smaller dish

- This is quite a filling frittata with a good serve of protein and healthy fats so serve with simple leaf salad.
