Salmon and Watercress Frittata


Salmon and Watercress FrittataSimple and quick enough for breakfast, yet impressive enough to serve for supper or lunch with friends and family, this frittata is loaded with goodness. If you’re not a fan of fish, replace it with some cooked ham or chicken, or for a vegetarian option, try chickpeas or roasted sweet potato.

Watercress, good for every body! When it comes to a salad leaf that is truly good for you, look no further than watercress.

Bursting with vitamins and minerals, this peppery little leaf is one of our natural superfoods – and tastes great too.

Pile it into sandwiches, toss into salads, use it to make a wonderful watercress soup or watercress sauce, wilt into pastas or stir fries, it’s incredibly versatile – but don’t just leave it to languish on the side of the plate as a garnish!

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)


  • Pre-heat the grill.

  • 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.

  • Add the watercress and stir, gently, until the watercress begins to wilt.

  • Remove the skin from the hot smoked salmon, and flake it into pieces into the pan. Add the lemon zest and dried chilli, if using.

  • In a bowl, season the eggs generously with salt, black pepper and a pinch of nutmeg, add the crème fraiche and whisk until combined.

  • 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.

  • Scatter over the feta cheese (if using).

  • Pop the frittata under the grill for another 2 - 3 minutes, to finish cooking the top.
