Frittata with Smoked Salmon



  1. Beat the eggs and crème fraiche with the horseradish and a little seasoning.
  2. Lightly saute the onion and chives in the butter until just softened then, over a medium heat, tip in the egg. Leave for a couple off minutes then, with a spatula, push in from the sides. Cook for 7 – 8 minutes or until almost set then lay over the smoked salmon slices.
  3. Place under a preheated hot grill for 2 – 3 minutes until just set then squeeze over the lemon juice and serve at once in wedges, with salad.
