fried smashed potatoes with lemon

Crispy, tender and lemony, this is quite possibly the best potato side dish that I’ve ever made. This recipe was featured a few weeks ago on Giada De Laurentiis’ Food Network show. First you boil the small red potatoes, then allow them to cool slightly before smashing them gently with the palm of your hand. Next, you slide them into a puddle of garlic infused olive oil for a quick fry until brown and crispy. Finally, you drizzle the homemade lemon dressing, featuring freshly picked thyme from my kitchen window sill, over top of the hot potatoes. I used them as perfect side dish along with a simple piece of broiled salmon and pile of roasted asparagus. Here’s the link to the recipe. Also, be sure to check out my page of other previously featured recipes on my blog.
