Ingredients – 2 portions

  • 300g  Charlotte potatoes
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 1tbs parsley
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 40g butter (unsalted)


  1. Wash, peel and rewash the potatoes.  Choose potatoes roughly the size of an egg.  Place the potatoes in a saucepan, cover with cold water, add a little salt and bring to the boil.  Turn down the heat and simmer gently until the potatoes are just cooked.  Carefully drain into a colander and refresh under cold running water.  Allow to dry.
  2. Chop the parsley and cut the butter into small cube shapes.
  3. Take the potatoes and cut them in half lengthways.
  4. Over a medium heat, heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan.

  6. Season with a twist or two of coarse sea salt and add the cubes of butter evenly in the pan.  The butter will begin to foam.
  7. Cook until the butter begins to turn a nutty brown colour.  Quickly turn off the heat and remove the saute potatoes from the pan onto kitchen paper to remove any excess oil.
  8. Place the saute potatoes onto a warmed dish or warmed plates, sprinkle lightly with chopped parsley and serve the saute potatoes immediately while hot.
