Smoked Fish Frittata with Aioli and Watercress
The frittata can be transported either in the pan, or tipped out and wrapped in wax paper before serving.
1 tablespoon olive oil 20 grams butter 1 brown onion, halved and sliced 1 large or 2 small fennel bulbs, cored, trimmed and sliced 8 eggs ⅓ cup cream 2 teaspoons horseradish 250 grams moist smoked fish 200 grams hot smoked salmon ¼ cup grated tasty cheese
⅔ cup store-bought aioli 1½ cups watercress baby zucchini flowers to garnish (optional) Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Heat the oil and butter in a 25cm, deep ovenproof frying pan. Add the onion and fennel and season well with salt and pepper. Cook over a gentle heat for 15 minutes until softened but not coloured.
Whisk the eggs, cream and horseradish together. Pour the egg on to the onion and fennel and use a wooden spoon to break up slightly as it first sets.
