A Fast 4 Ingredient DELICIOUS Frittata

27 05 2011

Hi Friends. I (Chloe) don’t know about you but I am REALLY looking forward to this long weekend. My mind and body are completely spent and I am very ready for some relaxation (by the pool!). Are your pools opening this weekend too? If so, don’t forget the sunscreen…you know what happens without sunscreen… Along with some down time pool side, I plan on doing a little grilling and pot luck BBQ’ing. Given my lack in energy and desire to keep things simple on the cooking front, I decided to keep things simple last night for dinner. And boy did I come up with a pretty fantastic recipe to share with you! This Old Bay Shrimp and Asparagus Fritatta is the perfect SUPER EASY summer evening dinner or dish to bring to a pot luck.

Old Bay Shrimp and Asparagus Fritatta (inspired by my pure laziness, desire for something light on a warm summer night and love of anything Old Bay)

Serves 4


  • 1  lb of fresh or frozen shrimp deveined and shelled
  • 1/2 lb of fresh asparagus
  • 8 Eggs
  • Big block of Feta cheese
  • Salt and Pepper and OLD BAY

What to do:

  1. Crack and whisk together 8 eggs.
  2. Devein and peel shrimp (I went the easy route and chose frozen shrimp that I just had to peel.

2. Cut up asparagus into bite size pieces. Leave out a handful of the longer stems to place on top of fritatta to make it look prettier and more   professional.

3. Heat about a tablespoon of olive oil in a saute pan that is oven safe (most stainless steel or dutch oven pans are ok to go in the oven. Check your pan before using it)

4. Dump in cut up asparagus and shrimp.

5. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder and OLD BAY!

6. Once shrimp is fully cooked and asparagus has started to get tender, pour in egg mixture. Let cook for a minute or two before using a spatula to lift the sides and allow uncooked egg to seep around the edges.

7. When all of the egg is almost cooked, crumble feta on top of fritatta and lay long asparagus stalks on top.

8. Place fritatta pan in broiler for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the top of the fritatta is golden brown.

9. And voila! An easy 4 ingredient fritatta ready in about 30 minutes. Maybe I should tell Rachel Ray about this one!

Enjoy warm or cold with a nice baguette!

That looks awesome and super simple is right. As a vegetarian I would have to substitute something for the shrimp but I too love Old Bay and will be able to use that to add to my mixture.

I am sure I have 5 ingredient recipes but OOIAJ is not one of them as I make it a kitchen sink meal. Throw it all in and enjoy it in the morning.
