Hashbrowns and Smoked Salmon

Standard

FullSizeRender

These were really tasty! The only thing is that they weren’t very pretty – it was hard to keep the hashbrowns all together when flipping them.

Ingredients:

1 pkg. frozen shredded potatoes

5 sliced green onions

2 or 3 large eggs, beaten

1 1/2 T. flour

4 oz. smoked salmon

Directions:

Combine 3 green onions, potatoes and eggs in a large bowl. Add the flour and some salt.

Heat some olive oil in a pan. Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, portion out about 4 potato patties into the pan. Press them down with a spatula and cook them until the are browned on the bottom. CAREFULLY flip them over and cook the bottom. Cover them if they are still uncooked until soft. Plate them to a dish and keep them warm.

Continue making hashbrown patties until you are done with the potatoes.

Place a slice of smoked salmon on top of each hashbrown patty. Top with the remaining green onions.

Simple Seared Opah

Standard

FullSizeRender

Last week, I found fresh Opah from Hawaii at my local Costco. It was so beautiful and fresh that I had to have it! Opah is such a flavorful fish that I didn’t want to frilly it all up with sauces, etc. In my opinion, Opah is a lot more flavorful and moist than swordfish.

Ingredients:

1/2 lemon

1 lb. opah fillet

Salt & pepper

Olive oil

Directions:

Squeeze the lemon juice all over the fish. Salt & pepper both sides. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan.

Sear both sides of the fish for about 3-4 minutes per side (or until barely cooked through).

Simple Swordfish

Standard

This sauce is so fresh and tasty – and it would be great with any white fish.

Ingredients:

2 swordfish fillets

1/4 c. olive oil

Juice from 1/2 lemon

Salt & pepper

Dried oregano or other dried herbs

Directions:

Grill the fish fillets until done. Cook them quickly and don’t let them dry out.

While the fish is cooking, combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl.

When the fish is done, remove it to a warm platter. Puncture it with a fork. Drizzle the sauce on top and serve.

This was a great, simple, healthy way to cook up some fish!
