Discover a delicious blend of flavors with this Hearty & Healthy Salmon Frittata with Spinach recipe. Perfect for a gluten-free, primal, and pescatarian diet, it's packed with protein and essential nutrients.


Step 1: Prep Pan and Salmon

To start, you'll need to get your salmon ready. If it's not already prepped, drain off any excess liquid and flake the salmon into small, bite-sized pieces. This ensures it will mix well with the other ingredients and bake evenly. Now, grab your 9 x 13-inch baking pan and give it a good spray with your non-stick vegetable spray. This step is crucial because nothing's worse than having your beautiful frittata stick to the pan!
Pro Tip: For a flavor boost, lightly season your salmon with a pinch of salt and pepper before adding it to the mix.

Step 2: Combine Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, combine your flaked salmon with the fresh spinach, chopped basil, eggs, milk, crumbled feta cheese, salt, and black pepper. Whisk it all together until the mixture is well combined. The spinach will add a lovely green color, and the basil will start to release its aroma, filling your kitchen with a delightful fragrance. Carefully pour this mixture into your prepared baking pan, ensuring the ingredients are evenly distributed.
Pro Tip: Gently whisking the eggs and milk separately before adding to the salmon can help ensure a smoother mixture.

Step 3: Bake

Preheat your oven to 375 F. Once it's up to temperature, pop your baking pan into the oven. Bake it for about 30 minutes or until the frittata is set and has a nice, golden color on top. You can check if it's done by inserting a knife or toothpick in the center - if it comes out clean, your frittata is ready to come out of the oven. The beauty of this dish as it bakes is the way the top starts to puff up slightly and takes on a gorgeous golden hue, hinting at the deliciousness that awaits.
Pro Tip: Keep an eye on your frittata for the last few minutes to avoid overcooking the edges while ensuring the center is perfectly set.
