I've finally found a way for myself to enjoy salmon! I really hate that I cannot stand salmon fillets, as I know how healthy they are for me. After eating red salmon in a sandwich that a lovely friend's mum made for me a while back, I realised that I didn't mind salmon in a tin! I figure that if I start eating salmon in these muffins I will be able to gradually work my way towards salmon fillets! I eat these with a side salad for a light dinner. You can top the muffins with extra herbs and a dollop of reduced-fat sour cream, if desired.
- extra virgin olive oil spray or 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
- 4 eggs, preferably free-range
- 1 can (210g) red salmon, drained, flaked & any bones removed
- 1/4 cup reduced fat cows milk (or if intolerant/allergic to dairy substitute for lactose-free, soy or unsweetened almond milk)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2 red or green capsicum, deseed and finely chopped
- a generous handful of baby spinach, chopped
- a small handful of dill and / or parsley, finely chopped
- 30g reduced fat feta, crumbled
- a generous amount of ground black pepper
1. Preheat a fan forced oven to 180 degrees. Spray or brush all holes of a 12 standard muffin tray.
2. Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl, then add the salmon, milk, water, capsicum, spinach, herb/s, feta and pepper. Mix well to combine and add more water if the mixture is too thick for your liking.
3. Pour the salmon & egg mixture into the prepared muffin holes. I like to make big muffins, therefore I usually make around 9 muffins. If you want to make 12 muffins, pour a little less into each muffin hole.
4. Bake for around 25 minutes or until egg is just set and golden. Remove warm, topped with extra herbs, if desired.
