Method

Discover how to cook boiled new potatoes with this easy to follow method. Once you've mastered the method, you can apply it to a number of dishes including our creamy new potato salad or new potatoes and cod en papillote.

On a hob:

  1. Place the salad potatoes in a pan and boiling water to cover the potatoes.
  2. Cover with a lid and simmer gently for approximately 15-20 minutes until just tender.
  3. Once cooked drain immediately.

In a microwave:

  1. Place the potatoes in a microwaveable dish with 2 tablespoons of water.
  2. Cover and cook on full power (800w) for 7-8 minutes.
  3. Carefully remove and allow to stand for 1-2 minutes before serving. 

Salad potatoes taste great on their own, in their skins, but if you would like to add butter, here are some interesting twists:

  • Citrus Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with the zest of an orange and half a lemon
  • Herb Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh herbs (parsley, mint, chives etc)
  • Pesto Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with 1 teaspoon red pesto
  • Garlic Butter: 25g softened butter mixed with 1-2 crushed garlic cloves

Tip: You don't need to add butter to salad potatoes, a handful of freshly chopped herbs, like parsley, adds flavour without the calories.

Alex Mackay's Roast King Edwards with Lamb Cutlets, Smoked Paprika, Peppers, Onions & Olives

"The first time I discovered smoked paprika was on roast potatoes served as tapas with smoked paprika mayonnaise. Before then, I'd assumed chorizo was spiced with plain paprika and then the whole sausage was smoked. It was a revelation and I've had a long lasting smoked paprika period since then. I serve the potatoes and pepper mixture with lamb as a little celebration of Spring."
