RV cooking: What’s the secret ingredient?

We've got secrets. In our family, we play a guessing game, challenging eaters to try and figure out what makes a dish extra special. 

Sometimes, that's a no-brainer, but often it's a challenge even when it's right there in front of your eyes.

A memorable brunch cooked and enjoyed by the beach at Deception Pass State Park was an example of just that "huh?" kind of moment. I folded leftover salmon into a potato and onion hash that had a secret ingredient. It was chopped, so not exactly easy to see. It added a hint of tart-sweetness to the satisfying mashup. Johnny couldn't figure it out.

Got any ideas? Send me your best guess at goingmobile@spokesman.com and I'll give you a shout-out in an upcoming post. Plus, I'll see if I can round up any prizes!
