3) In the same pan, with residual pan drippings, add onion and celery. Stir occasionally, sautéing about five minutes until soft. Remove and add potato halves, cut side down. Cook over medium-high heat until browned and crisp, about five minutes.


4) Add salmon to warm through. Add back in bacon, celery and onion. Toss to combine. Plate.


5) In a small bowl, mix together the horseradish, sour cream, and dill. Dollop around bowl with potatoes and salmon. Top with capers. Serve immediately.
