Smoked trout and leek frittata

It can be hard to cook a nutritious meal particularly when you’re tired or perhaps time just isn’t on your side.  I’ve been feeling like that quite a lot recently hence the recent reoccuring themes of roasted vegetables and frittatas for example like this one: smoked trout and leek frittata.  This recipe however doesn’t quite use everyday ingredients as much as I normally would.  Or perhaps you do have smoked trout, leek and asparagus in your fridge, in which case I’d like to invite myself over for dinner so I can check out the rest of your fridge.

The smoked trout packs in an abundance of flavour which is softly complemented by the leek and asparagus.  As always, enjoy!
