Roasted potatoes are loved by the Greeks, and they are made unique with the inclusion of plenty of garlic, lemon and oregano. Due to their sharp lemony, herby flavour, Greek lemon potatoes pair equally well with seafood, or a rich lamb dish. Topped with Olympus fetta cheese, there is even more sharpness, and a creaminess which is very satisfying and very more-ish! You can also finish with a sprinkle of fresh oregano if you have it.
These potatoes are very easy to make but look impressive and go with any main dish. They are the perfect thing when you need to ‘bring a plate’ to a barbeque or party.
There are many ways to cook this dish. We have developed this version which halves the roasting time. The par-boiling ‘hack’ also fluffs the outside of the potato slightly. This makes them superbly soft inside, and delectably crunchy on the outside when roasted.
In wintertime, the dish is a beautiful accompaniment to a delectable Lamb Souvla. In summer, we love to serve it with hot or cold seafood and a fresh side salad.
