Sally's Recipe of the Week: Broccoli-Salmon Frittata

Broccoli and Salmon Frittata
Serves 2 to 4

Here is something great about a frittata, you can make them with what ever you have on hand the only must have is eggs.  I woke up Sunday morning hungry and looked in the fridge and saw leftover salmon and some steamed broccoli also leftover.  So I decided to use it up in a frittata!  You could easily use potatoes, spinach, smoked salmon, garlic, roasted peppers....pretty much anything you would put in an omelette. Also some people use 4 whole eggs and 4 egg whites. Yes, this does make a fluffier frittata but I never have a use for the yolkes and I hate to waste them so I just use whole eggs. If you do have extra eggs whites throw them in there!

Here is what I used for my latest frittata:   

1

6 eggs
1 cup steamed broccoli
3 to 4 ounces cooked salmon
2 shallots
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup milk or cream
1 sprig fresh oregano (or you could use thyme)
vegetable oil
salt and pepper


2

Heat about 2 TBS oil in an oven safe skillet on medium high heat. Chop up the shallots, season with a pinch of salt and pepper  and cook until soft. Keep an eye on them, you want them to soften, not brown. Turn down the heat if necessary.

3

Preheat the oven to 400.
Whisk together the eggs, milk, cheese and a pinch of salt and a grind of pepper.

4

Chop up your protein and vegetables. Remember the vegetables/protein  should be cooked.
Also chop up your oregano.

5

Here is where I made a mistake, before you add the vegetables, protein and oregano into the pan add a little extra oil and mix well.   Then add the broccoli, protein and herbs and season with a little salt and pepper. 

6

Now pour your egg mixture over everything in the pan and swirl to distribute evenly.

7

Let set on stove for about 3 to 4 minutes. You will see the eggs pull from the edges of the pan.  Then put in oven on top shelf for 4 to 6 minutes, until eggs are set.

8

Take a spatula and run it under the frittata to help loosen it. Place a large plate or board over the pan and invert and let the frittata fall out.  Mine was a little sticky because I forgot that second oil step!

9

Slice into quarters and serve.  I apologize I did not garnish this dish, was a little pressed for time!  I served with some hot sauce.
