Smashed fingerling potatoes, an amazing side dish for roast chicken, fish or steak.
Recipe type: Side
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes, scrubbed clean with skin
  • 3 to 4 shallots, chopped
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon Herbs de Provence
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  1. Melt a whole stick or ½ cup butter into a pan and saute 3 to 4 chopped shallots until they almost start turning golden. In the meantime, boil fingerling potatoes, drain and with the back of a heavy serving spoon, give a smash or a pop. Sounds crazy, but that what I do, only being careful to just smash the top not the whole potato. Put potatoes into the butter and shallots and give a good stir with plenty of salt and pepper. Season with Herbs de Provence.
