High-Protein Fish & Potato Warm Salad Recipe
Prep Time: 10 min | Cook Time: 35 min | Serves: 4
+ 1 lb / 450 g white fish (cod, haddock, pollock, flounder, tilapia)
+ 4 medium potatoes
+ 2 tbsp olive oil
+ 3 bay leaves
+ 1 big onion, thinly sliced
+ 3 garlic cloves, minced
+ sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
+ 4 hard-boiled eggs, quartered
+ fresh parsley, chopped
Add the potatoes to cold water, bring to a boil, then reduce to medium heat. Boil the potatoes until fork tender and the skin just begins to crack, about 20-25 minutes. Drain and allow to cool. Peel the skins from the potatoes and cut into small square pieces. Set aside.
Add the olive oil, onion, garlic, and bay leaves to a large skillet and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the fish and cook for about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat, lift the fish out on to a plate and leave until cool. Break the fish into flakes, discarding any skin and bones.
Place flakes back into the skillet, stir in potatoes gently and cook over medium heat until warm for about 2-3 minutes. Remove bay leaves and garnish with parsley and boiled eggs. Enjoy!
