We all know that Mom deserves the best! If you’re already hunting for that perfect Mother’s Day brunch recipe, relax—we’ve got an out-of-this-world dish that’s guaranteed to start her day right. Our Smoked Salmon Hash is a luxe, mouthwatering and decidedly Mom-worthy meal. Bursting with flaky smoked salmon, red-skinned potatoes and green bell pepper, this colorful dish plates beautifully, whether on a breakfast tray or served family-style at the table. On the Seafoodie scale, this recipe gets our highest rating: a must-try!
We have to say, we think this dish is fit for a queen! For one thing, it’s a Mom-pleasing blend of bold flavors and textures. Think: smoky salmon tossed with crisp potato, aromatic vegetables, briny capers plus a dressing of Greek yogurt, lemon and mustard that delivers some serious tang. Pure yum! Using a cast-iron skillet (which we love for seafood recipes!) means you’ve got a one-pan, stove-to-table meal.
And when you treat Mom to some seafood, you’re giving her the gift of good health! Salmon is packed with satisfying protein and omega-3 fatty acids, so it helps curb appetite, fight chronic inflammation and support overall well-being. So, this is a meal you can feel really good about serving.
