Salmon Potato Hash
This recipe is great for breakfast or dinner.
If you want to add a fancier touch you can also drizzle with hollandaise sauce for the perfect brunch or celebration party.
I actually did most of the prep work the day before which makes this even easier to prepare quickly by precooking the potatoes and the salmon.
To prep the potatoes I drizzled them with a small amount of olive oil, added salt, pepper, and a small sprinkle of old bay. I then microwaved them for 6 minutes in a bowl covered with plastic wrap with a few fork punches for steam. I then put them in the refrigerator overnight. I love this method because they are ready to go in the morning, finish cooking and brown up faster in the hash and don't leave you trying to cut up hot potatoes and burning your fingers.
Dice up your potatoes and onion and add them to a large frying pan with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and garlic over medium high heat. When onions start to become transparent and potatoes are browned it's time to add your salmon. I also precooked the salmon the night before at the same time I prepped my potatoes. You can cook the salmon any way you wish. To keep the fish as moist as possible I used a poaching method. I did this by putting approximately 1 cup of water in a saute pan. To the water I added 2 lemon slices and a sprinkle of salt. I brought the water to a simmer and placed the salmon, skin side down, into the pan and covered. It will take 5-10 minutes depending on the thickness of your salmon. Once the salmon was done I used a fork to flake it apart and refrigerated it overnight.
Add the salmon to the potatoes and onions, stir gently to mix, you don't want to break up the salmon too much and just want to warm it up. Turn down the burner to medium.
Once you have gently folded salmon into the potatoes add your greens to the top, cover and cook until the greens have have wilted. Stir gently to mix the greens into your hash.
That's all there is to it! Serve it as a side or add a poached egg on top for an amazing protein packed, omega-3 filled meal and enjoy.
