Blackened Salmon With Hash Browns and Green Onions

Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 26 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
All fillets are not equal in thickness, so cooking times will vary. Plan on about 10 minutes total cooking time for 1-inch-thick pieces and 15 minutes for 1 1/2 inches thick, and so on. Place the largest piece on the heat first.

Ingredients

  • 3 bunches green onions
  • 6 cups frozen shredded hash browns
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons blackened seasoning
  • 4 (6- to 8-ounce) salmon fillets
  • Garnish: fresh dill sprigs

How to Make It

  1. Remove and discard root ends and 1 inch of top green portions of green onions, and set green onions aside.

  2. Toss together hash browns, dill, and salt in a large bowl.

  3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add hash brown mixture in an even layer, and cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned. (Do not stir.) Place a lightly greased baking sheet, greased side down, onto skillet; invert hash browns onto baking sheet. Place skillet back on heat. Slide hash browns back into skillet, cooked side up, and cook 5 more minutes or until golden brown.

  4. Press hash browns down with a spatula to flatten. Remove from skillet onto same lightly greased baking sheet, and keep warm in oven at 300°. Sprinkle blackened seasoning evenly over fillets.

  5. Cook salmon in 1 tablespoon hot oil in same nonstick skillet over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes on each side or just until fish begins to flake with a fork. Remove from pan onto serving plates.

  6. Sauté green onions in remaining 1 tablespoon hot oil in same nonstick skillet over medium heat 4 minutes or until tender; remove from pan, and serve with salmon and hash browns.

  7. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Old Bay Blackened Seasoning. Use a skillet with flared sides so the cooked hash browns slide out of the pan easily.
