This recipe is part of a meal plan for an 800-calorie day (see below) from The Fast 800 by Dr Michael Mosley (Simon & Schuster, $29.99). You can read our interview with Dr Mosley and view his other meal plans here.



  • 150 g smoked salmon
  • handful of baby spinach or leftover greens, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp chives, chopped (optional)
  • 20 g parmesan, grated

Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Lightly grease 4 holes of a metal or silicone muffin tray. Alternatively, use oven-safe ramekins, lightly greased.

2. Line the 4 holes with the smoked salmon.

3. Place the spinach in a bowl. Using a fork, lightly whisk in the eggs, chives and some ground black pepper.

4. Divide the mixture between the 4 holes. Sprinkle over the grated Parmesan and some more black pepper and bake for 15 minutes, or until the eggs look set.



• For something more substantial, serve this with extra leafy greens such as rocket or baby salad leaves on the side (insignificant cals).
