A delicious Pacific Northwest recipe made with smoked salmon and cream cheese. Garnish with fresh herbs or avocado slices for a beautiful presentation.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ medium onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 ounces pepper smoked salmon
  • 8 black olives, chopped
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • ½ (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cubed

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 2 Heat olive oil in an 8 inch oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and season with a little salt and pepper. Cook, stirring until translucent. Add the salmon and olives; cook and stir briefly to release the flavors.
  3. 3 In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and cream. Pour over the salmon and onion, and stir gently. Scatter cubes of cream cheese over the top. Cook over medium heat without stirring, until the edges appear firm.
  4. 4 Place the skillet in the preheated oven, and bake for 20 minutes, or until nicely browned and puffed. Flip onto a serving plate, and cut into wedges to serve.

  2. This was really good! I don't have a oven proof skillet so I just put all the ingredients in a casserole and baked it for 30 minutes. Came out great. I also used capers instead of olives.
  3. This was incredibly awesome! Not light! I added a tsp each of fresh chopped rosemary and thyme and a half of a fresh jalapeno finely chopped. I also put the cream cheese inside by putting it in with the onion before adding the eggs.
  4. I really enjoyed this. My husband didn't try it as he couldn't stand the smell of the salmon. He's not a fish eater for the most part. I loved the blobs of melted cream cheese. This made the dish very decadent and I expect providing people like salmon and cream cheese it will be a - Read more ...
  5. Good basic recipe but the smoked salmon was too strong tasting. Would be really good with bacon or other cured meat. Really you could add anything you like into this! Liked the cream cheese a lot but would cut the amount in half.
  6. This was great! I served this for our Easter brunch and everyone raved about it. (Even some who weren't too keen on the idea of fish and eggs together.) I would add some green onions next time.
  7. I substituted red onions, sliced in rings for extra color. Instead of olives, I used about a tablespoon of capers and sauted those with the onions. I'd definitely make this again for a special brunch.
  8. I didn't have an oven safe skillet but I just transferred the frittata to a round pan and it came out great! The cream cheese and eggs get so fluffy and the cooked smoked salmon is delicious. It was like eating at a restaurant!
  9. I used red pepper instead of black olives, and ditched the heavy cream doubling the milk. Delicious.
  10. This got rave reviews at brunch today. I did make a change and used fresh salmon (Copper River Salmon to be exact) that had been grilled the night before. I followed the advice of another reviewer and melted the cream cheese w/ the sauteed onions and I don't think that this is the way to - Read more ...
