  • Four eggs
  • 1 cup diced wild-smoked mackerel
  • One small onion, diced
  • One small bell pepper, diced
  • One medium-sized potato, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 cup grated cheese (cheddar or any melting cheese of your choice)
  • Two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh herbs (such as dill or parsley) for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a non-stick oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onion, bell pepper, and potato to the skillet. Sauté them for about 5-7 minutes until the vegetables are slightly softened and the potatoes are cooked through. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs until well beaten—season with salt and pepper.
  4. Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in the same skillet and heat it over medium heat. Pour the beaten eggs into the skillet.
  5. Sprinkle the diced wild smoked mackerel evenly over the eggs, followed by the sautéed onion, bell pepper, and potato mixture. Make sure the ingredients are distributed evenly throughout the frittata.
  6. Cook the frittata on the stovetop for 4-5 minutes until the edges start to set.
  7. Sprinkle the grated cheese on top of the frittata.
  8. Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for approximately 10-15 minutes or until the frittata is set and the cheese has melted and turned golden brown.
  9. Once cooked, remove the skillet from the oven and let the frittata cool for a few minutes.
  10. Garnish with fresh herbs, if desired.
  11. Cut the frittata into wedges and serve warm. It can be enjoyed as a main course, brunch, or light lunch. You can also serve it with a side salad or crusty bread.
