  • How to Make Garlic Lemon Potatoes:

    1. Chop potatoes into wedges with peel. Heat 1 tbsp of oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    2. Once the butter has melted, fry the potatoes on both the cut sides, each side for about 5-6 minutes.
    3. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook the potatoes until tender.
    4. Meanwhile mix together oil, lemon juice, zest, oregano, minced garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
    5. When the potatoes are tender, add the garlic-lemon mixture and stir very gently.
    6. The potatoes will break otherwise.
    7. Continue to cook, uncovered for 3-4 minutes.
    8. Turn off when you can see the crusty surface on the potatoes.
    9. Garnish with parsley or cilantro.
