Warm golden potato salad with lime butter and coriander


This fried potato salad with a buttery dressing is great served with smoky barbecued chicken, but equally makes an excellent snack to serve with beer.

1 kg chat potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 3mm-thick slices on a mandolin 60 gm butter, coarsely chopped 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped Finely grated rind and juice of 2 limes, plus wedges to serve 1 tsp hot smoked paprika, plus extra to serve For shallow-frying: olive oil 100 gm Greek feta, coarsely crumbled 3 pickled chillies, thinly sliced To serve: coriander

Method

  • 01
  • Soak potato in a bowl of cold water for 30 minutes to remove starch, drain, rinse, then blot thoroughly dry with absorbent paper.
  • 02
  • While potatoes are soaking, stir butter, garlic, lime rind and smoked paprika in a saucepan over low heat until butter melts, then cook gently until well flavoured (8-10 minutes). Season to taste, remove from heat, add lime juice and set aside.
  • 03
  • Heat 3cm oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat until just shimmering, add potato in batches and shallow-fry, stirring occasionally, until golden and tender (4-5 minutes).
