Sunday Brunch: Frittata with Salmon and Green Beans

Enough of extra sweet brunches of the past few weeks! Let’s have something savoury, for a change – frittata! Now, if you think that frittata is just a fancy name for an omelette, think again: while omelettes are prepared by simple mixing of egg yolks and whites in a bowl, for frittata you need to beat the eggs until you get them foamy, with lots of bubbles – for lots of texture.

And no, I didn’t know this until today 🙂

Ingredients (this will be enough to feed 4-6 people):

  • eggs – 6
  • green beans – 100 g
  • canned salmon – 80 g
  • basil – 2 sprigs (or 1/4 tsp of dried one)
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper

So, to make a frittata, you need:

  • If you are using fresh green beans, then you need to wash them, cut off the stalks, and boil them for 8-10 minutes. Now, this is breakfast we are talking about here, so I used canned beans. All you need to do is open them and get the liquid out. Perhaps chop them a bit if the beans are really long.
  • Break the eggs into a bowl and whisk until foamy.
  • Add salt, pepper, basil, stir.
  • Add beans and salmon (don’t forget to rid it of the oils it was canned in), stir.
  • Pour the mixture onto a preheated pan. While it’s frying, keep making holes and let the eggy liquid run into the holes.
  • When the eggs are set, make sure your frittata isn’t stuck to the pan. Then cover the pan with a big plate or a rimless, fairly flat lid and with a quick movement flip your frittata onto the plate/lid. Set the pan back on the stove, slide the frittata into the pan. Fry some more – and serve!
  • You can serve it with cheese or fresh vegetables.
It’s quite good even when it’s cold, too!
