I very recently used my first cast iron skillet. I know, I know what the hell took me so long? All I have to say is I don't know, and can't we just pretend this didn't happen and you don't know this about me? I'll bring you some yummy cast iron recipes if we can just keep this on the down low... Okay cool.
But seriously, this has been a total life changer. I won this skillet in one of my favorite lady's, Savoring the Flavoring, giveaway. So I pretty much owe her my first born child. All I want to do is cook frittatas and skillet cookies and basically anything that requires being cooked on the stove top and then in the oven. Which brings me to this salmon, onion, arugula, and caper frittata.
Here's What You'll Need:
-6 eggs (ideally pasture raised, organic)
-1/4 cup the milk of your choosing (I went with unsweetened almond milk)
-3 oz cooked salmon (I used grilled salmon from the night before, smoked or baked are also good options)
-3/4 cup arugula
-1/4 chopped onion
-1/4 cup capers
-2 tbsp Fourth and Heart California Garlic Ghee, separated
1) Whisk together the six eggs and milk in a bowl.
2) Heat up 1 tbsp ghee in your cast iron skillet over medium heat and coat the entire pan (so the frittata won't stick).
3) Toss in the onions and cook down for 2-3 minutes mixing regularly to cook evenly and distribute the onion.
4) Add in the second tablespoon of ghee and let it melt.
5) Chop up the cooked salmon and evenly distribute it around the skillet.
6) Toss in the arugula, evenly distributing.
7) Evenly pour in the egg mixture, tilting the skillet to spread it all over.
8) Evenly add in the capers.
9) Cover with a lid and cook for about 3-5 until the sides of the frittata start to cook and stick.
10) Remove the lid, and throw the skillet into the oven on broil and cook until the frittata is fully cooked and a golden brown color on the top (about 5 minutes).
11) Remove from the oven, cut into 4 even pieces, and enjoy!
I topped mine with some sriracha because I like it spicy, but this combo is perfect on its own. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
