Ingredients

  • 750g Jersey Royals
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 50g salted butter, melted
  • ½ x 25g pack fresh coriander, leaves only
  • 1 red chilli finely chopped

Method

  1. Put the potatoes in a pan and cover with cold, salted water. Bring to the boil, then bubble for 15-20 minutes until cooked through. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Drain the potatoes and set aside to cool slightly. In a large bowl, mix the remaining ingredients. Add the potatoes and toss well until coated; season.

  2. Tip the potatoes onto a large, lipped baking tray, reserving any leftover marinade in the bowl. Use a potato masher to gently smash the potatoes, just enough to fatten them without breaking apart. Roast for 40-45 minutes until golden and crisp. Drizzle over the leftover marinade and serve straight away.
