Potatoes in hash drink up a lot of salt, my main man. Few meals better than a plate of hash, crispy on the outside soft on the inside, with a couple fried eggs on top.
Trick is to use the store-bought frozen shredded potatoes. Sounds blasphemous but they come out great and are insanely easy. Stir em up with oil, green pepper, onion, and a ton of garlic and paprika. And the protein of your choice. Press down hard and leave it alone until a thick golden crust, then flip onto a plate and back in for the other side.
