Salmon with Yukon Gold Hash Browns
This recipe is very simple but makes the Salmon very moist and flavorful... I saw Jacque Pepin do this on a cooking show many years ago and have been making it ever since.
- 3-4 medium Yukon Gold Potatoes (depend on size)
- 4 pieces of salmon (individual serving size - even depth is good not too thin)
- dried basil
- Olive Oil
Preparation time 5mins
Cooking time 25mins
Heat a griddle to medium high heat.
Cut the Salmon into individual servings.
Grate the Yukon Gold Potatoes. I leave the skin on, just scrub it clean. Dump shredded potatoes on a clean towel, roll up and wring out as much liquid as possible.
Put Olive Oil and butter together on Hot griddle. With half of Potatoes, create a layer of shredded yukon gold potato in shape of each slice of salmon. Layer with one portion of uncooked salmon. Season with Salt Pepper and Basil. Top with remaining Yukon Gold Potatoes.
Cook on griddle until salmon looks "half cooked" and hashbrowns are perfectly crispy and brown. Flip as a unit and add a little more oil and butter. Season again with Salt/Pepper. When second side of potatoes are crisp, then salmon is done. Serve.
