Alaskan King Salmon Hash

½ pound King Salmon

1 small red onion, minced

1 T prepared horseradish

1 T whole grain mustard

2 oz capers

2 oz sour cream

2 pounds hash –browned potatoes

salt and pepper

chopped fresh chives or dill

Mix the salmon, onion, horseradish, mustard and capers together. In a large skillet, cook the hash-browns until golden brown. Add the salmon mixture and heat thoroughly. Divide on to 4 plates and garnish with sour cream and chives or fresh dill.

You can top with poached eggs if you like.


 Dutch Baby Oven Pancake

Serves 4

2 T butter

3 eggs

¾ cup flour

¾ cup milk

½ tsp sugar

powdered sugar and maple syrup or jam

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place butter in a cast iron skillet. You can also use any heat proof- skillet. . I just like cast iron because it retains heat so well.

Set in the oven for a few minutes until the butter melts.

Whisk the eggs in a bowl and add the flour, whisk until smooth. Add the milk. Remove pan from oven, pour in the batter and return to oven. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Serve immediately with powdered sugar and anything else that you like!


 Smiley Face Pancake


Serves 1


1 egg, scrambled

2 marachino cherries

whipped cream


1 piece of bacon, cooked

1 portion of prepared pancake mix, such as Bisquick


Mix the pancake batter according to instructions.

In a hot pan with a little butter or pan spray, make a nicely shaped round pancake.

Scramble the egg, and set aside.

To build your pancake,

Place the scrambled eggs on the pancake for hair,

Bacon for the mouth, cherries for the eyes, licorice for eyebrows, and whipped cream for a nose.

Serve with maple syrup and a hug!
