Boil the potatoes until just tender. Peel and slice.

Heat a 27cm non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add a little olive oil and swirl it around to coat the pan.

Arrange the potato slices over the base of the pan. Top with half of the salmon and sprinkle with 5ml each of the herbs. Pour in the egg and shake the pan to distribute the egg around the potatoes.

Place the pan under a hot grill and continue to cook until the top of the frittata is completely set.

Mix the crème fraîche, remaining herbs and zest together. Cut the frittata into wedges and serve topped with the remaining smoked salmon, herbed crème fraîche and rocket.

Tip of the day

Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
