Blackened Salmon With Hash Browns and Green Onions
Makes 4 servings
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
Remove and discard root ends and 1 inch of top green portions of green onions, and set green onions aside.
Toss together hash browns, dill, and salt in a large bowl.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I used "Simply Potatoes" and cooked accord.to directions. I also used authentic "blackening" rub and the dish was wonderful! Don't forget the green onions, I think they add a diff taste layer. Definitely will be added to my meal rotation!
I actually haven't made this yet, but was offering a suggestion to the last reviewer: when making hash browns from scratch, used previously baked potatoes not raw ones. Learned this the hard way my self and indeed you do end up w/a gray soggy mess! I am going to try this recipe this week---let you know how it turns out then!
