4 servings


800g Jersey Royal potatoes – washed

1g saffron threads 1 tsp.

Smoked paprika 100g

Unsalted Butter

1 x handful of freshly chopped parsley

salt for seasoning


First, take a medium-sized skillet and par-cook the Jersey Royal potatoes. Lightly season the water as it boils.

Once they are half cooked, heat the butter in a skillet or small skillet over medium-high heat and add the potatoes.

Scatter over the saffron and paprika and add a little more butter if needed and continue to cook and baste until nicely colored. Finally sprinkle generously with fresh parsley and pour over the remaining butter.

Perfect hot or cold.
