A fried or poached egg makes a great topper for the salmon hash recipe. Start cooking your eggs several minutes before the hash is done. Poached eggs can be cooked all together, but fried eggs are easier to cook singly; keep them hot by undercooking them slightly and holding them on an oiled baking sheet in a 200ºF oven.

Crack an egg into a cup. Heat about 2 teaspoons butter or oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. When the fat is hot, slip in the egg, season it with salt and pepper, and turn the heat to medium low or low. Cook until done to your liking, 1-to 2-minutes, basting the egg white with the fat to help it set.

Begin cooking as you would for sunny-side-up eggs, but rather than basting the egg, flip it gently with a spatula after the first side has set, and continue to cook for another minute, or until done to your liking.
