What makes this version of roasted potatoes a standout is the grated clementine zest that's sprinkled over the potatoes about halfway through cooking, along with shaved butter curls and a mixture of oil, garlic powder, and rosemary. But there's also the unusual step of crushing the potatoes before doing this, to increase the surface area--all the better to soak up those flavors. Boiling the potatoes before roasting makes them even fluffier.


  • 500 grams potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • garlic powder
  • fresh rosemary
  • red wine vinegar
  • 1 clementine
  • butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Place the potatoes in a pot filled with salted water. Bring to a boil and cook for approximately 7 minutes. Drain the potatoes and allow them to cool.
  3. Lightly coat a baking dish with oil and add the potatoes. Drizzle them with oil, season with salt and pepper, and stir.
  4. Roast the potatoes in the oven for 30 minutes.
  5. Use a potato masher and mash each potato lightly increasing the surface area (the larger the surface area, the crunchier the potato).
  6. In a bowl, combine the remaining oil with the a pinch each of garlic powder and rosemary and a splash of red vinegar. Drizzle this on the potatoes and add the clementine zest and some butter curls.
  7. Bake for an additional 30 minutes.

I love this kind of food, I m going to try it tomorrow. OK, I ll tell you that I like most of your recipes because they are trendy, easy and delicious. Now I started to to collect my favourites dishes. Cooking is an art and I so fond of it! Yum recipes comprise, I would say, ,"international" taste. And that is what makes your "cuisne" different from others. The first thing I do is to scroll about desserts which I enjoy preparing. I would like you to be selective and send us varieties with little sugar or a replacement. Thanks

If you want roasted potatoes that are cooked to near perfection with an infusion of flavor; this is the recipe for you. I made this for a friends dinner night and it was engulfed by my friends within just mere minutes. It was well worth the time and effort I put into making them and would give this recipe 5 stars. I will be making these every time I have a friends dinner night.
