Smoked Salmon Hash and a Fried Egg

I came up with this recipe trying to use some leftover smoked salmon after a long ride. The salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and iron.

Iron is very important for endurance athletes as the mineral allows your blood cells to supply your tissues with oxygen needed to support your metabolism. Low iron intake prevents your blood from carrying enough oxygen, leading to fatigue and an elevated heart rate


  • 2 large Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into small dice
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup minced yellow onions
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 8 ounces hot-smoked salmon, flaked
