If you are wondering what a Frittata is, just think quiche! A Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish that is similar to an omelette or a crustless quiche, enriched with additional ingredients often including meat, cheeses, vegetables or even pasta.

This meal is high in protein and also enriched with Omega 3 due to the tasty salmon that has been used. So let’s get cooking!

If your salmon steaks still have skin on them be sure to remove it and if there are still bones then debone the steaks as well. Break the salmon into small chunks using your hands or slice if you prefer and set aside.

Step 3: prepare egg mixture

Step 4: preparing an oven dish

Pour the egg mixture over the salmon and spinach layers. Using a spatula be sure to push the egg mixture down the sides of the dish and make sure the egg mixture has made its way through the entire dish; top, sides and bottom. The mixture won’t stay covering all the ingredients that’s ok as long as the egg mixture is throughout the dish.

Step 6: add tomato slices

Carefully place the tomato slices on top of the frittata so as not to sink them into the dish. Then place the oven dish into the oven to cook for about 30-35 minutes. Your dish is done when top is browned and checking with a toothpick or knife, it comes out clean. Remove from oven, sprinkle with parsley, serve and enjoy!
