Marjie’s Salmon Frittata


Yesterday, after working at the hospital, instead of going grocery shopping, I decided to drive down the shore with my younger daughter.  I am that kind of mother, spontaneous and willing to do any unplanned and fun activities with my children.  Needless to say, this morning, I did not have much in my pantry to make our usual sumptuous breakfast.  I had leftover salmon, milk, cheese, eggs, and scallions, so I used them to make us a delicious Salmon’s Frittata.

After all, cooking is not complicated, use whatever you have on hand to make a feast in your own kitchen.  Soon, you will realize, your best dishes are created with the simplest ingredients.

Marjie’s Salmon Frittata


Leftover baked salmon

6 eggs

¼ cup milk

1 chopped scallion

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Cheddar cheese

Feta cheese

½ tsp paprika

1 tbsp dried parsley

½ tsp pepper flakes

Salt and pepper


Shred the salmon and season with pepper flakes

In a skillet, cook the scallion in the oil over medium heat for about 1 or 2 minutes.  Add the shredded salmon, parsley, and pepper flakes.

In a bowl. whisk together the eggs, milk, half of both kinds of cheese, paprika, salt, and pepper.  Add the eggs to the salmon mixture.  Cover the skillet with a lid and cook until the frittata is about 3/4 of the way cooked through. Meanwhile, preheat your broiler.

Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the top, place the frittata under the broiler and cook until the top is a deep golden brown.


Hope your weekend was fabulous, and you are ready to start another week of my favorite month


  1. We made a frittata once with a bunch of leftover veggies from other meals. I never thought of adding meat into it, this sounds great! And I’m sure it was very filling, too.

    • I usually add spinach or any other veggies, but I did not have yesterday, Stephanie, and it turned great with the salmon.

  2. Wow, I am cooking this tonight! 🙂 It should be great with salmon. Never tried it before, but look forward to doing it in a few hours.

  3. I love seafood in general, Kayla. If you don’t like this one, I will try another salmon recipe, just for you.

  4. This looks absolutely delicious! Love a good frittata! Would love to see you make more of these with other seafood!

  5. I have many free time in this summer so i think i will make a cake for my family. And fortunately, I found this post and I will try this recipe. Thanks!
