Drain them well then spread them on a baking sheet. Gently press down on each potato with the back of a fork to flatten it.
In a large heavy skillet, heat a generous drizzle of oil over medium high heat.

Add the garlic and cook until fragrant and lightly browned about 1 minute. remove the garlic and discard. Add the potatoes in batches without crowding the pan and cook them without stirring until the bottoms turn golden brown, aabout 5 mins. Flip the potatoes and cook them another 4 to 5 mins until they are golden on the other side.

In a small bowl or har whisk or shake together the oil, lemon zest, thyme, salt and pepper. Spoon the dressing over the potatoes and serve.
