Griddled new potatoes with mint, lemon and rapeseed dressing

Side Serves 4 30 min
Warm, lightly dressed waxy new potatoes redolent of spring. If you don't have a griddle pan, use a heavy-based frying pan. These potatoes are good with chops, with fish, or at a barbecue.

Ingredients

  • 800g new potatoes, scrubbed and cut into ½ lengthways
  • rapeseed oil
  • finely grated zest of ½ and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp mint, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper

Method

Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 20 min

  • Step 3

    Whisk the lemon zest and juice, mint and 3 tablespoons of oil in small bowl and season.
  • Step 4

    Toss the warm potatoes in the dressing to serve.
