Tonight's dinner was salmon with lemon and dill, and these lemon dill fingerling potatoes were outstanding with it! There wasn't a morsel left! Everyone was in agreement that we should serve these again, and soon. What a great find! I am happy to share this recipe with my JAP friends! Enjoy!
Note: Just a reminder that you will bake these potatoes for 25 minutes at 400 degrees, then you will turn the oven up to 450 degrees for 20 minutes more.
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil.
To make the potatoes, cut each potato lengthwise in half. Take each half and cut into 4 pieces like in my photo. Each potato will have 8 pieces.
Combine the dill, lemon juice and the oil in a large mixing bowl. Add the cut fingerling potatoes. With your hands, toss the potatoes over and over until they are well coated with the seasonings. Place them on the sheet in a single layer like in my photo.
Roast in the oven 25 minutes, then turn the potatoes over, and TURN THE HEAT UP TO 450 degrees and roast another 20 minutes until nicely browned and tender, like the photo. Watch so they don't burn.
Remove the potatoes from the oven, salt and pepper them and cover with a loose sheet of foil until you are ready to serve. Enjoy!
