Preheat the grill to high. Whisk the eggs in a bowl together with the cottage cheese and the Parmesan. Season with a pinch of salt and plenty of black pepper and set to one side.


Heat the oil in an ovenproof frying pan or omelette pan. Fry the mushrooms for 3-4 minutes, then add the spring onions and flaked trout and cook for another 2 minutes.


Stir in the spinach and cook it until it has just wilted. Make sure the mixture is spread evenly over the pan, then pour over the eggs and a sprinkling of chilli flakes and cook gently for 4-5 minutes on the cooktop.


Put the pan under the grill for about 4 minutes, until the eggs have set. Serve warm with a green leafy salad.
