New England Codfish Hash
|All purpose potatoes||1 Pound, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice|
|Half and half||3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)|
|Cod/Haddock fillets||1 Pound, finely chopped|
|Black pepper||1⁄8 Teaspoon|
|Snipped dill/1/4 teaspoon dried dillweed||1 Tablespoon|
1. Place the potatoes in a 3-quart saucepan, add water to cover, and boil, uncovered, for 5 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender but not too soft. Drain and set aside.
2. Heat the half-and-half and butter in a heavy 9- or 10-inch skillet over moderate heat until the butter melts. Add the cod fillets, and cook, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes, or just until the cod turns opaque—do not allow the mixture to boil.
3. Add the potatoes, salt, and pepper, and continue to cook, stirring, 3 to 4 minutes longer, until heated through; the mixture should not brown. Sprinkle with the dill.
