Salmon-Broccoli Frittata

I usually plan our meals so that we use everything up by the end of the week. For example, if I am using spinach in one dish, and since they come in big bunches, I will include another meal that uses up the spinach. I’ve been so busy lately with the “new” job that I haven’t been planning meals as well as before.

Two weeks ago, I had (at the end of the week) one head of broccoli, one piece of salmon, and a lot of eggs. I could have just made baked salmon, steamed broccoli, and rice, but I was feeling adventurous (and also the hubby gets tired of having rice too much). I thought about making a quiche, however I wasn’t up for making the pie shell. Then I remembered that A Dash of Zest posted a frittata recipe recently and I thought I would create something similar using broccoli and salmon.

1 salmon fillet (cooked – I usually bake it with lemon & dill)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
Dill (depends on your taste)
6 eggs (increase/decrease based on how much other “stuff” you have)
1 head of broccoli, chopped
Red pepper flakes (a dash)
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
Lemon juice & lemon rind
Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix salmon, broccoli, parmesan cheese, eggs, dill, red pepper flakes, lemon, lemon rind, and salt and pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
  3. Cook onion and garlic in oil, in a oven safe skillet over medium heat, until onion is translucent.
  4. Stir in the salmon mixture and cook for 5-6 minutes, stir it a little at the beginning and flake the sides.
  5. Put in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, let it stand for 2 minutes.

Easy to make and doesn’t take long! It also fed us up to 4 meals! (Great for leftover!)



    • Cool! We are still working through the cookbook I got last year hehe. Although my problem is not finding recipes, but more that when I am busy on the weekend, we don’t get around to doing house stuff (i.e. grocery shopping) together and no time on weeknights haha.
