Lemony Smashed Potatoes

To go with our Roasted Salmon dinner, Martha Stewart in the Everyday Food mag, suggests, Lemony Smashed Potatoes. This recipe intrigued me and I couldnt wait to try it. It was EXCELLENT! The lemon flavor was slight and the evoo and the s and p brought all the flavors together very well and made the entire meal perfect!



Serves 8
red new potatoes
1/4 cup evoo
2 tsp finely grated lemon zest
coarse salt and pepper

Set a steamer basket in a saucepan with 1 inch simmering water. Add potatoes, cover and cook until potatoes are easily pierced with a pairing knife. Lightly smash potatoes, toss with oil, and lemon zest. Season as you like with s and p.
