    Place potatoes in a large saucepan of cold water, bring to the boil, reduce heat to low and simmer until very tender (20 minutes). Drain, cool to room temperature, transfer to a large bowl and gently crush some with a whisk, leaving some a little chunky. Add remaining ingredients and 1 tbsp sea salt flakes and stir to combine.
