  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat olive oil in an 8 inch oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and season with a little salt and pepper. Cook, stirring until translucent. Add the salmon and olives; cook and stir briefly to release the flavors.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and cream. Pour over the salmon and onion, and stir gently. Scatter cubes of cream cheese over the top. Cook over medium heat without stirring, until the edges appear firm.
  4. Place the skillet in the preheated oven, and bake for 20 minutes, or until nicely browned and puffed. Flip onto a serving plate, and cut into wedges to serve.

I used red pepper instead of black olives, and ditched the heavy cream doubling the milk. Delicious.

I substituted red onions, sliced in rings for extra color. Instead of olives, I used about a tablespoon of capers and sauted those with the onions. I'd definitely make this again for a special ...

I didn't have an oven safe skillet, but I just transferred the frittata to a round pan, and it came out great! The cream cheese and eggs get so fluffy, and the cooked smoked salmon is delicious....

This got rave reviews at brunch today. I did make a change, and used fresh salmon (Copper River Salmon, to be exact), that had been grilled the night before. I followed the advice of another rev...

This was really good! I don't have a oven proof skillet, so I just put all the ingredients in a casserole and baked it for 30 minutes. Came out great. I also used capers instead of olives.

This was incredibly awesome! Not light! I added a tsp each of fresh chopped rosemary and thyme and a half of a fresh jalapeno finely chopped. I also put the cream cheese inside by putting it ...

This was great! I served this for our Easter brunch and everyone raved about it. (Even some who weren't too keen on the idea of fish and eggs together.) I would add some green onions next time.

I really enjoyed this. My husband didn't try it as he couldn't stand the smell of the salmon. He's not a fish eater for the most part. I loved the blobs of melted cream cheese. This made the...
