Saturday Recipe 1

Salmon Frittata
1 Serving

This simple omelet or frittata is a great way to incorporate some healthy omega-3's into your breakfast or lunch. It's even better if you use omega-3 enriched eggs. This recipe also works with either two whole eggs or four egg whites. This is a perfect meal for a low carbohydrate diet.

1 egg
1 egg white
1/2 cup (about 3 oz) cooked or canned salmon
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp salsa

In a medium bowl, stir the egg and egg white together to blend. Chop or mash the salmon so and combine it with the eggs. Add the cheese and salsa and pour the mixture into a small, lightly oiled non-stick skillet. Cook over medium heat for 2 - 3 minutes until set. You can then turn the frittata over (don't worry if it breaks up) or put the skillet in a hot oven for 2 minutes to set the top.
