Lemon Smashed Potatoes (Tyler Florence)

A large part of what makes this recipe so good is that you cook the potatoes whole-- no peeling, no slicing. The spuds are cooked in whole milk and heavy creamy, with added fresh lemon zest. They are creamy and a delicious side dish to serve with fish (see my Sole Almondine recipe)

Lemon smashed potatoes are a light and bright side dish.

Ingredients

  • 6

    medium Yukon gold potatoes

  • 2 to 3

    cups heavy whipping cream

  • 2 to 3

    cups whole milk

  • Kosher salt

  • 2

    lemons, zested

  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Put the whole potatoes in a large saucepan with the cream and milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then add 1 teaspoon of salt. Reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are very tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove about 2 cups of the liquid and reserve. Add the lemon zest and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Use a potato masher to break up the potatoes while adding about 1 cup of the reserved liquid, to just 'wet' the potatoes. Add more, for desired creaminess. Spoon the potatoes into a serving bowl and serve immediately.
