  1. Put the potatoes in a pan of boiling water. Simmer for 8-10 minutes until tender. Drain and set aside for 2 minutes to steam dry in the pan.
  2. Preheat the oven to 170°C, fan 150°C, gas mark 3. Line a 23cm x 12cm x 5cm deep rectangular baking dish with baking paper.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, dried mixed herbs, chilli flakes and 1 tablespoon water and season to taste.
  4. Layer the potatoes, mackerel, spinach and basil in the prepared baking dish. Pour over the egg mixture and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour until the egg is cooked through. Slice and serve.


Take care not to overcook the frittata or the eggs will become tough. You can serve this straight from the oven, but it’s just as good served cold.
