    This is delicious! I substituted ham for salmon, tastes divine and so quick and easy!

    360°F is 180°C, not 150°C. I made this and made the mistake of not converting it myself, which I usually do since I tend to OCD. Which temp is the correct one?

    Never mind, it has to be at least 180°C because I had overbaked mine at 150°C and it still is undone in the middle. I hope I can save it by covering it with foil and baking it longer because a couple of the ingredients are pretty expensive in Sweden for a poor student. =(

    I am sorry that this recipe was not a success for you. I have asked the recipe team to review the baking time conversion.

    I would call this a quiche (without crust!) Not a fritatta...
    Anyway, it looks delicious!

    YUM! This is fantastic. I used fresh abd pickled asparagus (I dumped about a T. Of the pickled asparagus juice in it too). I also added some cream cheese chunks in it. So so yummy!

    ... I used canned salmon and my cast iron pan and i did have to cook longer than recommended time stated. But it was really fantastic. Everyone over asked for the recipe.
