I lived in Jersey for 2 years not too long ago, and I don’t recall cooking Jersey Royal potatoes all that much. I wasn’t a big foodie back then, surviving mostly on a liquid diet and my culinary adventures stretched to cooking chicken rendang out of M&S jars.
When we were in Waitrose yesterday, I spotted Jersey Royals which Hubby was more than happy to add to our basket. For lunch today, I made a simple meal of grilled lamb steaks which I marinated with crushed garlic, dried oregano and thyme, and olive oil for an hour. I boiled the Jersey Royals for 20 minutes, and seasoned them with salt and pepper before serving. I had some leftover broccoli and green beans, which I sautéed with shallots and thyme.
I left some Kerrygold butter out for Hubby in case he wanted to add a dollop onto the potatoes, but Hubby said that they were delicious on their own. And they were.
