Salmon Potato Hash

by Michelle on June 12, 2009

This week for Tyler Florence Fridays I decided to make Salmon Potato Hash. My market sells salmon sausage which is a pork casing stuffed with fresh salmon. I bought a package some time ago and Mr. Tastebud’s has said, more then once, “when are you going to use up this salmon sausage”! It was time to use it for something.

This was a scrumptiously delicious dish! There was nothing leftover and we nearly licked the plates clean. I would love to make this dish substituting the salmon sausage for salmon fillet or a mild Italian sausage.

Salmon Potato Hash
Recipe adapted from Tyler Florence

1 (2-pound) center-cut, skin-on, salmon fillet
Extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Fresh dill, for garnish (I used chopped green onion stems)

Hash:
About 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
4 potatoes, cut into bite-sized dice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 bunches green onions, diced
1 red bell pepper, seeds and ribs removed, thinly sliced (skipped)
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 sprigs fresh thyme

Egg:
Water
White vinegar
4 to 6 large eggs

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

For the Salmon:
Place the salmon on a large baking sheet skin-side down. Drizzle salmon with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Place into the oven and bake for 30 minutes until flaky. Transfer to a cutting board.

For the Hash:
Add olive oil to a fry pan and heat. Add the potatoes and fry until lightly browned. Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon and place onto a paper towel-lined plate. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Flake the salmon from the skin, removing it in chunks. Discard the skin. In a large bowl ently blend the salmon and the potatoes.

Remove most of the oil, leaving only a couple of tablespoons. Place over medium heat and add the sliced onions, sliced peppers and garlic and allow to caramelize. Add the green onions, thyme leaves, paprika and cayenne pepper. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine. Add the potatoes back to the pan and stir to combine.

For the Eggs:
Place a large sauté pan with high sides over medium heat and fill with a few inches of water. Heat until just below a simmer. Add a splash of white vinegar and using a wooden spoon, stir the water in 1 direction to create a small whirlpool. Crack the eggs and add, 1 at a time, to the spinning water. Allow to poach until desired doneness. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate.

To Serve:
Plate the salmon-potato hash and top with the eggs. Pour Hollandaise sauce over the eggs and garnish. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Hollandaise Sauce
Recipe adapted from “Tested, Tried and True” by The Junior League of Flint, MI

3 to 4 egg yolks (I always use 3 yolks)
1/2 tsp salt
1 TBL lemon juice
1/2 c. butter (1 stick)
Dash of Tabasco (I usually skip the Tabasco)

Put yolks, lemon juice and seasoning in blender and blend for about 30 seconds. Melt butter in microwave. With the blender on, pour a thin, steady stream of melted butter into the blender. Viola…it’s done and delicious!

    What a beautiful dish! I have never seen salmon sausage before..that’s pretty cool. What a great way to use it up. I bet it was delicious.

    Salmon sausage sounds delicious – and with the potatoes and hollandaise….. wow.

  • mary June 12, 2009 at 3:24 pm

    What is salmon sausage like? I have never heard of that before and can’t quite imagine it. Is it spiced like “regular” sausage? Sounds fascinating!

    Mary,

    I shop at 2 markets, both family owned and only 1 makes the Salmon Sausage. So I think the Salmon Sausage is unique to this 1 market.

    The Salmon Sausage is ground fresh salmon fillet and then packed in a pork casing with no other ingredients or herbs added. It tastes just like salmon except the texture is different.

    The salmon sausage was good and very convenient to use. I’m going to buy more and grill it and serve on hotdog buns. It will be a quick meal on a hot summer day.

    Hey congrats on Blog of Note! This is the first time someone I’m following has gotten that honor! You really deserve it!

    When I read the title it reminded me of something my French Canadian parents used to make.
    Leftover mashed potatoes mixed with a can of salmon, chopped onions and lots of pepper. They would cook this in a cast iron pan and it would get crusty. I am not sure about any oil or liquid. They burnt it once and we had to eat it anyways. Times were tough.

    Sausage, potatoes, and hollandaise. What a great excuse for brunch. Lovely photo.

    This is a completely droolworthy recipe. I had to do a double take on the poached egg…and you can actually buy salmon sausage? I’ve never seen it here. Very nice recipe.

    I have to say, even though I am not much of a salmon fan (*gasp* I know!) that this looks like something my husband would dearly love – it looks really yummy!

    Salmon sausage…interesting! And amusing! The dish sounds wonderful!

  • Kayte June 13, 2009 at 10:42 am

    Looks really great…I do believe I could eat anything with a hollandaise sauce, and this recipe is surely worthy! You have a great way of styling even hash! Salmon sausage…I learn something new every week over here. I think I would love to try that!

    Whoa! I totally wish I could find salmon sausage around here. You take the idea of this dish to a whole new level with that. Delicious.
