Smoked mackerel, leek and dill frittata

mackerel leek dill frittata

This is a really delicious frittata, full of goodness and flavours that compliment each other, and a proper comfort food.  It makes a nice change to use dill instead of parsley.  It should take about 25 minutes to prepare and can be served with salad or perhaps some broccoli.  Slowly, but surely, I am overcoming my pathetic fear of cooking with eggs..!

Ingredients (serves 4)


2 leeks, chopped

8 eggs

30g cheddar cheese, grated (optional)

Handful of dill, chopped

Salt and pepper

3 smoked mackerel fillets, torn in to pieces

Fry the leeks in a frying pan in some butter until soft (approx 5 mins).  Meanwhile lightly beat the eggs with the cheese, dill, salt and pepper.  Pour the egg mixture in and leave it to fry until the bottom is set.  Top with the mackerel pieces. At this point transfer the whole frying pan to an oven and grill until the top is golden and the frittata is cooked through.  Eat!
