A quick and easy smoked salmon and broccoli frittata recipe, packed with protein, this makes a perfect breakfast or lunch, as well as a family dinner.
This easy smoked salmon and broccoli frittata recipe (with peas for extra veg too) has been a life saver for me in recent months. If you follow me on YouTube you’ll know I’ve been dabbling with Slimming World and the The Body Coach, Lean in 15 plan to try and lose a lingering few pounds.
Honestly? I don’t seem to have had a great deal of success sticking to either ‘plan’ so I’m thinking about shifting my focus a bit to be more mindful and conscious of what I’m eating, rather than being too rigid. This means trying to make sure I have a good balance of protein and vegetables in every meal.
I know I feel so much better when I eat like that.. So why is it so hard to do it consistently? A lack of time and planning often I guess.

Step in miracle breakfast frittata recipe – hurrah! This easy frittata, Spanish omelette, crustless quiche, whatever you’d like to call it, is so versatile and tasty. I’ve been making it for family dinner and then having leftovers for breakfast.
The Norwegian Smoked Salmon gives it a real depth of flavour that makes it taste like a lot more work that it actually is. This is also a great way of getting green veg into your diet in the morning without even realising.
This smoked salmon and broccoli frittata fits in perfectly with the Slimming World diet and the Lean in 15, Joe Wicks plan if you’re following either of those.
Enjoy and feel positively virtuous.. (Oh and only one pan to wash up. Win!)

Tips for making the Smoked Salmon and Broccoli Frittata recipe:
- You could use fresh salmon rather than smoked for this recipe, which would also be delicious. Just steam a fresh Norwegian salmon fillet, remove the skin and flake over the broccoli and pea mixture before adding the egg.s
- Don’t overcook the salmon, cook until it’s just turned a solid pale pink throughout.
- This would make a brilliant packed lunch, just chill and wrap up.
- I used to make this with normal (unsmoked) cooked salmon for my children when we were doing baby led weaning, and cut it up into fingers for them. They loved it!
- Mix and match and add whatever vegetables you have available.
