Salmon, spinach and potato fritatta

Fritatta is so versatile because you can eat it hot or cold, so if you’re going to be rushing around in a hurry at around dinner time you can make it ahead then just serve it with a quick salad and be done.

Or eat it hot and it’s delicious too! Then you can have leftovers for packed lunch.

This one gives you lots of omega 3 so you will definitely be *even* more brainy after eating it!

Ingredients

  • olive oil
  • 2 medium waxy potatoes, cleaned and thinly sliced (no need to peel)
  • 6 spring onions, chopped
  • half a red onion, thinly sliced, large handful of fresh spinach
  • 2 skinned salmon fillets cut into small chunks
  • 5 free range organic eggs, beaten
  • dash of double cream
  • handful of grated strong cheddar
  • sea salt
  • coarse ground black pepper

Instructions

After thinly slicing the potatoes using a food processor (or by hand if not) place them in a large frying pan and cover with boiling water from the kettle. Boil them for about 15 mins until cooked. You need to use waxy potatoes so the slices stay in one piece.

While they’re cooking brush a 23cm flan dish with olive oil and add the spring onions; when the potatoes are cooked drain them well then tip them into the flan dish on top of the spring onions, so they cover the whole base. Sprinkle over a good amount of sea salt because the potatoes need to be well seasoned, and a little bit of black pepper. Then add the spinach and sliced red onion.

Mix the cream and cheddar into the eggs and pour the mixture into the flan dish then arrange the salmon chunks all over the top, if you have a bit of cheddar left sprinkle it over the top.

Brush a bit of olive oil on to the top of each salmon chunk and add a little bit more seasoning.

Bake for 25-30 mins at 180 degrees.

Nutrition Info

Salmon

Salmon (and its peer, sea trout) is very high in Vitamin B12, which is important for red blood cell production. A deficiency in B12 can result in a form of anaemia. B12 also helps to regulate production of a hormone called Homocysteine, an excess of which can lead to heart and blood vessel disease and stroke. Salmon is also a good source of Vitamin D, whose functions include bone health, blood sugar control and immunity. Many people are Vitamin D deficient – our bodies largely get it from sunlight with food being a secondary source.

Always buy good salmon, responsibly produced and organic. Salmon farming is riddled with issues, not just for the fish themselves, and us as consumers, but for the environment.
