Servings 4 people


  • 20 new potatoes
  • 80 g samphire
  • olive oil


  • Turn on the oven to a high heat.
  • Wash and cut the larger potatoes in half.
  • Parboil the potatoes for about 8 minutes until they are starting to soften.
  • Place the potatoes on a baking tray and drizzle in olive oil.
  • Roast in the oven for about 40 minutes, turning them occasionally so that they are coated in oil.
  • Boil, fry or steam the samphire for about two minutes.
  • Sprinkle the lightly cooked samphire over the potatoes and serve.


Always leave the skins on new potatoes as that's where most of the nutrients and fibre is.
Keep an eye on them during roasting so they don't burn. The insides should be light and fluffy and the outside crisp and golden.
