New Potatoes With Anchovies
Anchovy lovers will be in heaven here, especially when the spuds are slavered with a chilli, garlic and butter combination. Serve this with some grilled fish.
If the potatoes are large, cut them in half, otherwise leave whole. Put into a pan of cold water with the garlic cloves, season with salt, bring up to a boil then simmer gently until tender, approx. 15-20 mins.
Drain the potatoes, cover with a lid and allow to steam while you make the anchovy butter. Remove the garlic, and when cool enough to handle, peel and mash with the side of your knife. When the garlic has cooled, mix with the butter, anchovies, chilli flakes, lemon zest and juice. Season to taste. Dress the potatoes with the butter and scatter over the extra slivers of anchovies.
