Smoked Salmon And Leek Frittata
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
3 large eggs
2 Tbs. cream
1/4 tsp. Fresh ground pepper
2 oz smoked salmon
2 Tbs. Unsalted butter
1 leek, rinsed and coarsely chopped
1/4 tsp. Caraway seeds
3 Tbs. Chevre, crumbled
Preheat the broiler. Beat eggs, cream, and pepper together in a mixing bowl. Stir in the smoked salmon. Melt the butter in a 10-inch flameproof skillet over medium heat. When it has stopped foaming, stir in the leek and caraway. Cook, stirring, until the leeks are golden and soft, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove half the leek with a slotted spoon, and set aside. Lower the heat to medium-low, and stir in the egg mixture. Cook just until the bottom is set; the top should be wet, 3 to 4 minutes. Sprinkle with the chevre and reserved leeks.
Place the skillet under the broiler and cook until the eggs are set and the cheese is slightly melted, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
