Smoked Salmon Hash - Heathman Hotel

"Hot-smoked salmon is a Northwest specialty, and makes one great brunch dish! Use only hot-smoked salmon or kippered salmon for this dish. It's chunkier and drier than regular smoked salmon, which is cold-smoked and won't be right for this dish. Recipe is from the Heathman Hotel in Portland, Oregon. Serve topped with a poached egg. Or serve as is."

Ready In:




  • Place the potatoes in a large pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, add a big pinch of salt, and cook until tender, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely, then peel and dice.
  • Shred the salmon into a medium bowl. Add the onion, horseradish, mustard, capers, and the 1/4 cup of sour cream. Toss to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Melt the butter in a large heavy saute pan and add the oil. Add the cubed potatoes to the hot fat and saute until golden brown and crisp. Add the salmon mixture and toss to combine and heat through. Add more salt and pepper, if desired.
  • To Make the Poached Eggs (Optional):

  • Meanwhile, fill a large skillet with water. Add the vinegar and some salt and bring to a soft rolling boil. Break the eggs into saucers. carefully tilt the eggs, one at a time, into the bubbling water. Cook until the whites are set and the enters are just soft, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Divide the hash among four plates. If you poached the eggs, remove from the water with a slotted spoon and place them on top of the hash. Top with a little of the sour cream mixture and serve immediately.

<p>Married to my sweetheart for almost forty years and we have two wonderful children who are grown and have flown the coop. Also, we have been blessed with a wonderful son-in-law and beautiful daughter-in-law, plus FIVE grandchildren: two beautiful granddaughters ages five and eight, and three sweet adorable little grandsons ages 2 months, 2 years and 3 years. My husband and I share a combination of English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, Dutch, Swiss, Polish, Austrian, German and French heritage, and our son-in-law and daughter-in-law are both Hispanic. We've traveled extensively to many countries abroad (we lived in Germany), and have traveled and lived in several states here in the U.S.A. Many of the recipes I post here are influenced by our combined heritage or from our travels, or they are old family favorites that I want to share with you. I hope you enjoy! Have been to culinary school with many years of cooking (mostly for my family) under my belt, so know my way around a kitchen. And I'm very lucky to have the best sous chef in the world, dddddh! One of my favorite chefs of all time is Jacques Pepin! I have several of his cookbooks, and enjoy watching his television cooking show Fast Food My Way. Another top favorite is Julia Child (of course!). A few other chefs I read/enjoy watching on t.v. are: Giada At Home, Ina Garten's The Barefoot Contessa, Nigella Lawson's Nigella Bites, and Patti's Mexican Kitchen, and many more. On my bucket list is dining at Thomas Keller's establishment The French Laundry in Napa Valley, California... as well as Alice Waters' Chez Panisse in Berkeley, and the James Beard award winning Tartine Bakery and Cafe in San Francisco. One day!! &nbsp; Hobbies/Interests: Decorating with fresh flowers and herbs from the garden is my passion, and brings me deep joy! It's really hard to beat!! I love connecting with others who enjoy the same. Gardening, decorating, sewing, music, dancing, film, and reading are also up there. Spending quality time with my grandchildren, family, and friends (and cooking holiday meals!). Currently, a newfound passion has been so richly rewarding for me: genealogical research. I heart ancestry dot com. And last but certainly not least, I absolutely LOVE cats--we have two half-Siamese fur babies (cats) that allow us to live here!!&nbsp; &nbsp; A Note of Thanks~ I try to personally thank everyone who kindly makes and reviews my recipes, but sometimes I am busy, late, or may forget. Please know that I am always humbled that you would try one of my recipes, and I enjoy reading the reviews and seeing all the pretty photographs. Thanks so much!&nbsp;</p>
