6 to 8 red-skinned potatoes
Several chives, finely chopped
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup milk
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup chopped smoked salmon
1 bunch scallions, minced
In a large pot, bring just enough water to cover the potatoes to a rapid boil.
Lightly add salt to the water. Add the potatoes, with the skin still intact,
to the water and cook them until they are fork-tender. Drain the water from
the pot, leaving only the potatoes. Add butter, milk, and salt and pepper to
the boiled potatoes and mash all of the ingredients together. Add the smoked
salmon and the scallions to the potatoes and stir them throughout the mixture.
Finish the potatoes with chives.
