Salmon hash

Salmon hash

This healthy salmon hash is a handy all-rounder recipe, perfect for an easy brunch, lunch or midweek dinner. This simple one-pot recipe uses tinned salmon for a wallet-friendly meal, mixed with crispy fried potatoes and the fresh, zingy flavours of lemon, spring onions and dill.

  1. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the potatoes, cover with a lid and cook for 10 mins, stirring occasionally. Add 100ml water, re-cover and cook for a further 5 mins until the potatoes are cooked through.
  2. Stir in the spring onions and lemon zest, season and cook for 5 mins. Add the salmon, breaking up any large flakes, and cook for 3 mins until heated through.
  3. Sprinkle over the capers and dill, then serve with lemon wedges and a drizzle of chilli sauce, if you like.

Tip: Top the hash with a fried egg for an extra-hearty meal. Simply serve up the hash then return the frying pan to the heat, crack in 4 eggs and fry to your liking.
