Serves 4


12oz Maris Piper potatoes, boiled, slightly cooled and chopped into cubes

100g RR. Spink & Sons Cold Smoked Trout

300g washed baby spinach leaves

4 large free range hens’ eggs

2 cloves of crushed garlic

Salt and ground black pepper to taste

Olive oil




In a heavy-bottomed or cast iron pan, sautée the potato cubes with olive oil, the garlic and season with salt & black pepper. Turn frequently, and cook for approx 10 minutes until the edges are nicely browned and crisped.

In a separate large pan, bring water to a low simmer and slowly place in the eggs. If you’re confident, cook two at a time. Set a timer for 3 minutes.

When cooked, remove the eggs individually with a slotted spoon and set aside carefully on some kitchen roll whilst you assemble the dish. Repeat with the remaining two eggs.

Place the spinach in a large pan with a knob of butter, pepper and just cover the bottom of the pan with boiled water. The spinach will wilt in about two minutes. Remove from the pan and place on kitchen roll to absorb excess water.
To plate up, serve the dish in a bowl or pasta dish. Place the hash browns on the plate, then add the spinach, a poached egg and finish with a few slices of cold smoked trout.

    Nice dish this but if you are going to do hash browns, why not do them properly. Really you need 175 grams of potato to each person. Boil them then take them off the heat, run under cold water and dry them. You need one large onion besides your ingredients, thinly sliced which you mix with all the other ingredients and 30 ml of olive oil. Fry on a hot griddle or cast iron pan until they are as brown as you like them. Great taste.
