Smoked salmon, peas and basil frittata

1 portion; 5 min preparation; 20 min cooking time.

This is yet another delicious and easy recipe that you can prepare in advance. This dish is good for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can also prepare it the night before and take it to work in a lunch box. Just warm it up and you will enjoy a healthy lunch at work. 

Frittata is a kind of omelette that often contains potatoes and other vegetables. It’s a one-pan dish that is fast and easy to make. You can vary endlessly with the ingredients and the toppings.

You can prepare the recipe on the stove or bake it in the oven. It’s entirely up to you. I just cut some calories by not frying it and not using any oil, which makes the dish super healthy as well.

These are the ingredients for a single portion. If you want to prepare the dish for more people, just multiply the ingredients and use a bigger baking dish or a casserole. No extra work involved.

Ingredients

  • 3 big eggs, beaten
  • 100 g peas, frozen
  • 100 g smoked salmon
  • 50 g cooking cream
  • 10 g fresh basil, minced
  • 1/4 tsp paprika powder
  • 1/8 tsp white pepper
  • 1/8 tsp salt


Preparation

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C/340 degrees F. Grease a small oven dish.

Chop the smoked salmon roughly and spread in the baking dish.

Take the peas from the freezer. Blanche them for 1 minute in a pan of boiling water. You can also wash the peas with hot water instead. It will help them defrost. Spread the peas on top of the salmon.

Mince the basil fine. Add to the salmon.

Beat the eggs in a bowl. Add the cream and continue beating. Add the seasonings. Pour the eggs on top of the salmon. Mix well and spread the salmon and peas so that they are even in every piece of the frittata.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 min or until the top is set. There should not be any runny egg. Serve with fresh salad and avocado on top. Enjoy!
