Hot smoked salmon & watercress frittata
Serves: 4
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 150g watercress
  • 150g hot smoked salmon
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • ¼ tsp dried chilli flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 10 large, free-range eggs
  • 1 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 25g feta cheese, thinly sliced (optional)
  1. Pre-heat the grill.
  2. Warm the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan with an oven-proof handle and sauté the spring onions over a gentle heat for a few minutes until soft.
  3. Add the watercress and stir, gently, until the watercress begins to wilt.
  4. Remove the skin from the hot smoked salmon, and flake it into pieces into the pan.
  5. Add the lemon zest and dried chilli, if using.
  6. In a bowl, season the eggs generously with salt, black pepper and a pinch of nutmeg, add the crème fraiche and whisk until combined.
  7. Pour into the pan and cook over a gentle heat, moving the mixture around with a spatula every now and then, until the bottom of the frittata is set and the top is still wobbly.
  8. Scatter over the feta cheese (if using).
  9. Pop the frittata under the grill for another 2-3 minutes, to finish cooking the top.
