The sweet nutty Jersey Royal heralds the end of winter and the beginning of

the more delicate, tender British vegetables. These potatoes need so little

to make them the most satisfying accompaniment. This recipe forces them to

centre stage!



450g (1lb) of Jersey Royal potatoes

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

juice of half a lemon

2 tablespoon of chopped spring onions

3 tablespoons of chopped coriander leaf

Coarse salt and ground pepper



1) Halve the potoatos lengthways creating more surface area for the absorbtion

of the dressing.

2) Place the Jersey Royals in a saucepan, cover with water, season with salt

and bring to a boil. Cook the potatoes until tender, around 10-15 minutes;


3) Mix the olive oil with the lemon juice, salt and pepper.

4) Sprinkle the coriander and chopped onion over the warm potatoes and toss

them in with the dressing. Adjust seasoning to taste.

This dish can be served warm or cold.
