These potatoes are roasted in the oven and then dressed with a sublime lemon and olive oil emulsion. They are so good, they could be eaten as a main dish. But we like them with roasted chicken.  roastedpotatoes2.jpg

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs baby Yukon gold, fingerling, or tricolor potatoes, scrubbed
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 6 cloves garlic, unpeeled, lightly smashed
  • 2 lemons, quartered

Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 400° F.  
  2. Toss potatoes, 14 cup oil, salt, pepper, and garlic on a foil-lined baking sheet.
  3. Roast, tossing occasionally, until browned and tender, about 35 minutes; transfer to a serving bowl and keep warm.
  4. Purée remaining oil, 12 teaspoon salt, and the lemons(rind and all) in a blender until smooth. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer over potatoes; toss to combine.

This sauce is so good, you can make extra to pour over chicken, fish, shrimp, rice or noodles. You can also add it to marinades.
