I usually cook with recipes. I often make changes, but I like having a plan… a starting point. Recently, I’ve been improvising more. Instead of buying ingredients for specific meals, I’ve been making meals based on the ingredients I have.
One of the dishes I threw together this week was a frittata with smoked salmon, wilted greens, and shallots. It was easy to make, tasted great, and was easy to reheat the next day at work!
Smoked Salmon and Wilted Greens Frittata
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 shallot, chopped
- 2 cups mized greens, coarsely chopped
- 1-2 ounces smoked salmon, coarsely chopped
- 4 eggs, beaten
- salt and pepper, to taste
- optional: cheese and/or fresh herbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sautee pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add shallots and cook until softened, 3 minutes. Add greens and cook another 1-2 minutes, until the leaves begin to wilt. Toss in smoked salmon, and cook 1 minute. Pour in eggs and cook until eggs start to set, 3 minutes. Transfer pan to oven and cook 10-12 minutes, until eggs are fluffy and coked through. Season with salt and pepper, slice, and serve.
**I garnished my plate with slices from 1/4 of an avocado.
This week is Bay Area Dance Week, so in addition to my usual jobs and classes, I’ve had extra rehearsals and shows. Quick meals have been very much appreciated!
