Smashed Buttery Fingerling Potatoes with Shallots
Smashed fingerling potatoes, an amazing side dish for roast chicken, fish or steak.
- 1 pound fingerling potatoes scrubbed clean with skin
- 3 to 4 shallots chopped
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon Herbs de Provence
- sea salt
- freshly ground pepper
Melt a whole stick or 1/2 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.
