Jersey Royals with asparagus and lemon and chive mayo

Side Serves 4 25 min
This recipe is best with Jersey Royals, which are in season in spring and early summer and have a waxy texture and a subtle taste. This recipe is even better if you have time to make your own mayonnaise. Try it with poached salmon or sea trout, or grilled chicken.

Ingredients

  • 250g mayonnaise
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • handful chives, chopped
  • 24 Jersey Royals
  • 12 asparagus spears

Method

Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 15 min
  • Step 1

    In a bowl mix together the mayonnaise, lemon juice and chopped chives.

  • Step 3

    While they are cooking steam or boil the asparagus spears in another pan until just tender (about 3 minutes).
  • Step 4

    Drain both the potatoes and the asparagus, then once cooled mix with the mayonnaise. Serve with fish or chicken.
