    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.

    I am allergic to milk and cream cause me abdominal pain. Has anyone tried this with coconut milk or coconut cream instead?

    Hi, Carol! We haven't tested this with alternatives. The flavor might be affected by using unsweetened coconut milk, but the recipe should still work fine!

    If I used fresh frozen salmon instead of smoked or canned should I cook it first or will it cook enough in the dish?

    Hi, Marjorie! No need to cook it first. It will cook in the dish.

    This was so good! Cooked up light and fluffy and delicious. I will cut to 1/2 tsp salt or less though because both the smoked salmon (I used Costco Kirkland) and parmesan are both quite salty. It fits nicely with my keto plan. It came out to 351 calories per serving, 2.7g net carbs (5%), 24.2g fat (41%) and 30.6g (54%) protein. I cooked it in a toaster oven and had to cook an extra 10 minutes for the center to set. Toaster oven probably isn't the most accurate of ovens...
