Blackened Salmon with Hash Browns & Onions

                                     Makes 4 servings
All fillets are not equal in thickness, so cooking times will vary. Plan on about 10 minutes total cooking time for 1-inch-thick pieces and 15 minutes for 1-1/2 inches thick, and so on. Place the largest piece on the heat first.

3 .....................bunches green onions  
6 .....................cups frozen shredded hash browns 
1..................... tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried dill 3/4 .................teaspoon salt 
4 ....................tablespoons olive oil, divided 
2 ....................teaspoons blackened seasoning 
4 ................... (6- to 8-ounce) salmon fillets  
                    ***Garnish: fresh dill sprigs ***

1.               Remove and discard root ends and 1 inch of top green portions of green onions, and set green onions aside.
2.               Toss together hash browns, dill, and salt in a large bowl.
3.               Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add hash brown mixture in an even layer, and cook 5 minutes or until lightly browned. (Do not stir.) Place a lightly greased baking sheet, greased side down, onto skillet; invert hash browns onto baking sheet. Place skillet back on heat. Slide hash browns back into skillet, cooked side up, and cook 5 more minutes or until golden brown.
4.                Press hash browns down with a spatula to flatten. Remove from skillet onto same lightly greased baking sheet, and keep warm in oven at 300°. Sprinkle blackened seasoning evenly over fillets.
5.               Cook salmon in 1 tablespoon hot oil in same nonstick skillet over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes on each side or just until fish begins to flake with a fork. Remove from pan onto serving plates. 
6.                Sauté green onions in remaining 1 tablespoon hot oil in same nonstick skillet over medium heat 4 minutes or until tender; remove from pan, and serve with salmon and hash browns.
I used Old Bay Blackened Seasoning. (you can use the Blackened Seasoning of your choice) .Use a skillet with flared sides so the cooked hash browns slide out of the pan easily.
