One of my favorite things to order when I go out to breakfast is hash - corned beef, roast beef or any other variation - which got me to thinking about trying to make it at home. After all, the ingredients are simple: As long as you've got some kind of protein, potatoes and onions, you're in business. And it makes a fast brunch or even light supper dish, with or without poached eggs.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 2 Tbs. oil over low heat in a 12-inch non-stick skillet (so potatoes don't stick). While skillet heats, prepare onion and salmon as directed above. A few minutes before cooking, increase heat to medium-high. When oil starts to send up wisps of smoke, add onion and salmon; cook, stirring often, until golden brown. Meanwhile, dice potatoes and toss with remaining oil. Transfer salmon mixture to a bowl and reserve.

  • Add potatoes to empty skillet; cook, stirring only occasionally so they form a golden-brown crust, about 10 minutes. As potatoes cook, mix ketchup, mustard, fresh dill and 2 Tbs. of water. (Recipe can be prepared to this point up to 2 hours ahead. Spread hot potatoes on a large lipped cookie sheet; cover when cool. Return skillet to medium-high; add potatoes and re-crisp.)

  • Return reserved salmon mixture to skillet; stir in ketchup mixture, then season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until hash has nicely browned, about 5 minutes longer.

My husband scarfed this down - he is a big salmon fan. I thought it was good (but will change a few things next time) and will serve it to family for brunch next weekend. I will reduce the oil as someone else has suggested and maybe add some diced tomatoes (personal preference- I put them on almost everything) I would definitely recommend adding the salmon when the onions are just about done. Great alternative to corned beef hash:) Read More

Overall - a Great flavour combination. I was a bit unsure of ketchup and mustard...but it turned out very tasty. I will keep this recipe but would cut out some of the oil. I was intending to make 2 portions but ended up eating it all in one go! I added some capers to add a bit of zing - but quite fine without them. Read More

Really fantastic I wish I'd taken a picture! It was so so good I served it with buttermilk mashed potatoes with green onions and it was great. I broiled my salmon filet with some olive oil dried oregano salt & pepper and then when it was done I flaked it with a fork into bite size pieces. Read More

I skipped the ketchup/mustard combo and instead just added dried dill to the whole concoction. I served it with the creamy dill dip (from this site) on the side as an optional thing but everyone ended up using it and raved about how good it was. Overall great idea. (Love it with poached eggs as well!) Read More

This is a really great recipe though I found the directions unnecessarily confusing. I basically just saute onions and fry potatoes until softened and slightly crisp/golden brown. In parallel I fry two pieces of salmon (I don't use filets). As everything is frying I prep the sauce. I double the sauce recipe as I find that the original amount does not completely coat all of the ingredients. I've also recently substituted dried rosemary for fresh dill in the sauce as I was out of the latter. I found this to be even tastier (and less messy) than using dill which I did the first time I made it. Once the salmon is slightly fried to the point of being softened I allow it to cool for a few minutes and then mince the fish meat with a knife/my fingers removing any bones. I then combine potatoes onions and salmon in a big frying pan (by this point each is fully cooked) and allow it to fry for 5 mins mixing frequently. Two minutes before I am about to turn off the heat I pour on the sauce and mix thoroughly. Results are extremely delicious! Read More

Excellent hash and a nice change from the typical corned-beed: crusty brown and delicious. I didn't think browned salmon would be so tasty. Because it is such a good basic recipe it's easy to mix and match proteins and herb flavorings. Just follow the same preparation directions and it will turn out great. Read More

This was wonderful! I was skeptical about the ketchup and mustard, but it was lovely together. I also reduced the amount of oil. As a whole, my family and I aren't too keen on dill, so I used fresh rosemary (half the amount that was listed for the dill) and a little lemon thyme. I also added a drizzle of honey to the dressing as I wanted to use Dijon mustard, but also have that little hint of sweetness. WONDERFUL! Give this one a go! Read More

This was just ok. Edible but nothing special. The fish was overcooked I should have added it at the end of the onions or cooked separately. Read More

Not bad. I was looking for something to do with left over baked salmon. I'm not a big salmon lover so wanted something more than the salmon and rice and found this. Simple to make and quick. From start to table in about 20 minutes. I used left over cooked salmon and tossed it in the pan for the last 2 minutes with the onions to warm up. And I used 1 tbs dried dill. Read More
