This Whole30 Smoked Salmon Hash with Za’atar Fried Eggs by Kani Kai is the PERFECT way to break out of your breakfast rut. This stunning recipe boasts a ton of upscale flavor, but fear not! The whole thing pulls together in just under an hour.

To finish, add a sunny-side-up egg seasoned with salt, pepper, and the star of the show — za’atar. For an added bonus, serve your Smoked Salmon Hash and Za’atar Fried Eggs with sliced avocado and radish (but it’s perfectly delicious without them).

New to cooking with Za’atar?

Za’atar is a Middle Eastern spice blend typically made from a combination of ground dried thyme, oregano, marjoram, and sesame seeds. It may also contain other ingredients such as sumac and salt. This versatile blend is traditionally used in Israeli and Palestinian cuisine and can be used in a variety of dishes, such as dips, marinades, and spice rubs for grilled meats. It has a savory, slightly tangy flavor and is a wonderful addition to eggs or any other dish you want to give an extra punch of flavor!

Smoked Salmon Hash with Za’atar Fried Eggs

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 55 minutes


Potato Hash

  • 4 russet potatoes diced into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 1 red bell pepper finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 bunch Tuscan kale ribs removed and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • 1 tbsp capers, drained
  • 8 oz smoked salmon, broken into chunks
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • Salt & freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp flat-leaf parsley finely chopped

Za’atar Fried Eggs

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp za’atar

Optional Toppings

  • sliced avocado
  • red radish thinly sliced


  • ADD potatoes to a medium pot and cover with cold water by 2 inches, then add a generous pinch of salt.
  • BRING potatoes to a boil over medium heat and cook for 10-13 minutes, until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain the potatoes with a colander.
  • WARM avocado oil in a large pan over medium heat, then add the cooked potatoes. Cook potatoes until they begin to crisp — about 10-12 minutes. Flip the potatoes over often for even browning.
  • ADD in the onion, bell pepper, and garlic, and cook for 8 minutes until the peppers and onions are just soft.
  • ADD the kale, tomatoes, capers, and smoked salmon to the onion and bell pepper mixture. Cook for about 5 minutes or until the kale is just wilted and the salmon is warmed through.
  • SEASON smoked salmon hash with smoked paprika, salt and pepper, then toss in the parsley.
  • PREPARE Za’atar fried eggs. In a large pan, warm olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • CRACK in the eggs and cook until the edges are crispy. Cover the pan with the lid and cook until the egg whites are set — about 2-3 minutes.
  • SEASON the eggs with salt, pepper, and za’atar.
  • PLATE each serving of smoked salmon hash topped with a Za’atar Fried Egg, and enjoy!
