PREP + COOK TIME: 30 MINUTES
½ pound purple-skinned white-flesh sweet potato, peeled, grated coarsely
1 medium onion, grated coarsely
1 egg white
¹⁄³ cup finely grated parmesan
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill 1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1½ tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon white vinegar
¼ pound hot-smoked salmon, flaked
¼ cup Greek-style yogurt
2 teaspoons dukkah
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves
lemon wedges, to serve
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
2. Combine sweet potato and onion in a medium bowl; squeeze out excess liquid, return vegetables to bowl. Stir in egg white, parmesan, herbs, and garlic; season.
3. Heat half the oil and half the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat; spoon half the sweet potato mixture into pan, flatten to a 4-inch round. Cook for 3 minutes each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels; place on pan, season with salt. Repeat with remaining oil, butter, and sweet potato mixture to make two rösti in total.
4. Bake rösti 10 minutes or until crisp and cooked through.
5. Meanwhile, to poach eggs, half-fill a large, deep frying pan with water, add white vinegar; bring to a gentle simmer. Break 1 egg into a cup. Using a wooden spoon, make a whirlpool in the water; slide egg into whirlpool. Repeat with 3 more eggs. Cook eggs for 3 minutes or until whites are set and the yolks are runny. Remove eggs with a slotted spoon; drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.
6. Divide rösti between plates; top with salmon, eggs, and yogurt. Sprinkle with dukkah and cilantro, serve with lemon wedges.
