This superfood-packed smoked salmon and broccoli frittata is a perfect speedy lunch, brunch or dinner option. 

Taking a ludicrously speedy 15 minutes to make, it only needs four ingredients: salmon, broccoli, eggs and fresh dill (plus olive oil to fry and salt and pepper to season). No fresh dill? No problem - you can use dried instead, it will still taste delicious and be ready in less time than in takes to order a takeaway. This is a great budget dish, one of our great cheap family meals collection, though this one is also great if you just want to treat yourself. This recipe makes a big, generous portion for one, or you can share it with someone else and serve with a green salad. 


  • 100g broccoli, trimmed
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 25g smoked salmon trimmings, chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill (or 1tsp freeze dried)




  1. Cook the broccoli in boiling water for 3 mins or until just tender. Drain in a colander and rinse in cold water until cold and drain again.
  2. Heat the oil in a medium non-stick frying pan. Beat the eggs with seasoning then add the broccoli to the pan and sauté for 2 mins. Pour over the eggs and cook for 3-4 mins or until the base has set.
  3. Scatter the salmon and dill over the frittata and cook under a hot grill for 2 mins or until the top has set. Cut into wedges and serve with salad.
