Method

  1. Preheat the grill to high. Cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes, or until tender. Cook the asparagus in lightly salted boiling water for 2-3 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, mix together the eggs, milk, cheese and mixed herbs. Season generously with salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. To make the salad dressing, mix the vinegar with 2 tbsp oil, season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  4. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan and cook the leek for 3-4 minutes, or until soft. Stir in the smoked salmon, potatoes, asparagus and peas and heat through.
  5. Pour in the beaten egg mixture, making sure the other ingredients are covered. Stir the egg mixture to break it up a little as it begins to cook. Cook for 2-3 minutes over a medium heat, or until the edge of the frittata begins to set.
  6. Place the frittata pan under the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the egg is cooked and the top is golden.
  7. Toss the salad leaves with the dressing and serve with the cooked frittata.
