Smashed Potatoes and Lemon? Sounds strange but it’s delicious! Lemon Smashed Potatoes use zest for a bright, fresh taste and are a perfect accompaniment to Sole Almondine which also uses lemon as a key ingredient. Tyler Florence of the Food Network made this at his recent appearance at Macy’s Lenox Square.
Lemon Smashes Potatoes
Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan and add the cream and milk. Bring to a boil then add 1 teaspoon of salt and reduce the heat and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, until the potatoes are very tender. Drain, reserving the cooking liquid, then return the potatoes to the pot. Add the lemon zest, season with salt and pepper, then use a potato masher to break up the potatoes. Ad about 1 cup of the milk/cream mixture to just moisten the potatoes. Fold in the chopped parsley and serve immediately.
