A few months ago, I received a text from a dear friend saying something along the lines of, “Do y’all eat salmon?”

Turns out, we eat salmon weekly.

So I responded with a resounding, “YES,” curious as to why she was asking.

Her next text said it all: “We have a Blue Apron box with salmon. My husband can’t eat it, and we need someone else to take it.”

Hesitantly, I said yes.

Because while we love salmon, I was skeptical of the whole box-in-a-dinner thing.

Not because I don’t think these boxes are worthwhile. I actually think they’re amazing. They’ve encouraged several of my non-cooking friends to make tasty homemade dishes and try something new… but I felt like they’d be lost on me since what I do is cook at home.

Turns out, I was completely wrong.

The box contained ingredients for a simple supper for two: Pan-Seared Salmon with a Brussels Sprouts, Potato and Turnip Hash. It also included a tart browned butter apple dressing to go on top of the veggie hash.

So I got to work… and it was one of the best meals we ate that week.

And since it was so good, I’ve been recreating it in our kitchen with ingredients I picked up from the grocery.

I also adapted it because we’ve been head-over-heels IN LOVE with this hash business. And that’s what I’m sharing with y’all today.

My recipe makes enough for four, though if you and yours want to enjoy this for just the two of you, it’s all good. ALL the winter vegetables! And then a tart (dairy-free!) apple hash to go on top of ‘em. What’s not to adore?

Ingredients

Apple Hash

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon grainy Dijon mustard
  • 2 Granny Smith apples , diced
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Black pepper , to taste
  • Juice from ½ lemon

Winter Vegetable Hash

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 russet potato , diced
  • 1 large purple turnip , diced
  • 16 Brussels sprouts , halved and peeled
  • Kosher salt and black pepper , to taste
  • Juice from ½ lemon

Instructions

Make the Apple Hash

  1. Dice the apples into ½” bite-sized pieces.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. When melted, add the apples, stirring constantly as they cook. Season with salt and pepper, then add the Dijon mustard. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until browned and soft.
  4. Squeeze in the lemon juice, then remove the apple hash from the pan. Set aside.

Make the Winter Vegetable Hash

  1. Using the same pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Dice the potato and turnip into ½” pieces (similar to that of the apple.)
  3. When the oil is warm, add the potato and turnip, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook for 5-10 minutes, or until they begin to have a brown crust.
  5. Add the Brussels sprouts, and cook for another 5-10 minutes. (You want everything to soften and get brown, but not become a mushy mess.)
  6. Remove from the heat, and add the lemon juice.
  7. Serve the Winter Vegetable Hash with the Apple Hash over fish or chicken, and enjoy warm.

    I’ve been meaning to try BlueApron for ages..I’ve heard nothing but good things! I’m glad you had a good experience with their salmon – truthfully, I’m usually skeptical about where my salmon comes from too. Sounds like they (and you!) nailed it. I’d seriously consume this meal every single week – it looks perfect!

    • Erin

      You should totally give it a try, Julia! I was totally skeptical, but we loved the meal we had… and we’ve continued to make it at home with our own ingredients after the fact. 🙂 And like you, I’d seriously consume this meal every week without fail.

  2. Meghan @ Cake 'n Knife

    I shouldn’t have looked at this when I was STARVING. I love the idea of serving this hash with fish! I know what I’ll be making during the week now. YUM.

    • Erin

      That’s always a problem that I have while reading food blogs. 😉 This hash is totally delicious on fish, so I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
