Smoked Salmon Frittata

It’s almost the end of the lenten season and I wanted to add yet another foodie discovery to my “meatless arsenal”.  Got the recipe from the magazine, New Idea. 😉

What’s great about this recipe is that it only uses six ingredients and is fairly easy to prepare – especially for a novice frittata maker like me!

WHAT YOU NEED: 6 eggs, 1 1/4 cups milk, 100 g packet smoked salmon (cut into thick strips), 1/2 cup bottled fire roasted peppers (drained and chopped), 1 cup frozen peas, 2 cups grated tasty cheese (cheddar may also be used)

HOW TO:

  1. Grease a 20cm round cake pan and line base with baking paper. (I opted to do away with the greasing and lined even the sides with baking paper).
  2. Whisk eggs and milk in a large bowl until combined. Stir in salmon, peppers, peas and half the cheese. Season with pepper.
  3. Pour into prepared dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  4. Bake, uncovered, in a 180C oven for 1 hour, or until set and golden. Let stand in pan for 10 minutes.
  5. Turn out of dish. Serve cut into wedges.

Once done, here’s my four-step “guide” on how to best enjoy your “finished product”.

Bon appetit!

VERDICT: Definite crowd-pleaser :mrgreen:
