Lemon Roasted Jersey Royals

by Elisa Roche

Ingredients

500g Jersey Royal potatoes
Olive oil
Maldon sea salt and cracked black pepper
3 large garlic cloves, peeled and sliced in half
Zest of 1 unwaxed lemon
Sprigs of lemon thyme

Directions

Heat the oven to 220C/ Gas 7. Scatter the Jersey royal potatoes into 1 large or 2 smaller roasting tins, and rub well in oil. Season generously with salt and pepper.

Put the potatoes in the oven for 20 mins. The skin should start to crisp and turn a golden colour. Reduce the oven temperature to 190C/Gas 5, shake the potatoes, add the garlic and cook for a further 20 mins.

Remove the potatoes from the oven and, using a large grater setting, grate lemon rind over them. Add lemon thyme sprigs, give everything a toss and return to the oven for 5 more mins.
