Ingredients
  • 3 large fresh whole spot fish, cleaned

  • 1/4 cup chopped freshly cooked bacon
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • Cider vinegar
  • Freshly ground black pepper
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Steam or boil the fish 7 to 8 minutes. Remove the fish and let cool 3 minutes, then very carefully peel and discard the skin. Slowly remove the meat from the bones using a fork or small knife (take your time with this as the more you pay attention, the fewer small bones you will find in your finished meal).

  • Chop the baked potato into bite-size chunks and add the fish to the potatoes. Top with the bacon and onions, then add vinegar and pepper, to taste. Mix all the ingredients together to a hash, using a fork, and enjoy!
