Serves 4 people

This is one of the classic French recipes for potatoes (one of more than 600!!!), and also one of the easiest to prepare. Choosing a waxy potato like kipfler for best results.

  • 700g kipfler potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • salt flakes and freshly-milled black pepper
  • ½ bunch parsley, finely chopped

1 Steam the potatoes over a saucepan of simmering water for 30 minutes, until tender, the use a small sharp knife to peel them while still warm.

2 Halve the potatoes. Put the butter in a large frying pan over a moderate heat and cook until nut-brown, then add the potatoes and fry until browned. Add the lemon juice, season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with parsley and serve.
