Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds Yukon gold potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons high-heat oil or bacon drippings, divided
  • 1 cup chopped leeks (white and light green parts only)
  • 1 cup chopped fennel bulb
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 4 ounces smoked salmon, flaked
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted red bell peppers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 eggs (optional)

Directions

Cook potatoes until just tender in a large pot of salted boiling water, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and let cool. Grate potatoes into a large bowl and set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add leeks and fennel and cook until soft, about 7 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil and grated potatoes. Spread potatoes evenly in the pan and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, until a crispy brown crust forms.

Flip potatoes over in sections and cook until golden brown, another 7 to 10 minutes. Gently stir in salmon, peppers, herbs and vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Using a spoon, make 4 shallow indentations in hash and crack 1 egg into each indentation. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until whites are set, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
