Salt 'N' Vinegar Roasted Potatoes

Did you every buy authentic fish & chips?  The fried fish dripping with malt vinegar?  We just turned it around in this recipe.  The vinegar is on the potatoes!

  • 1-1/2 lbs. small round potatoes
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup malt vinegar (cider vinegar can be substituted
In a medium pot, bring potatoes to a boil over high heat in salted water.  Cook at a rapid simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.  Place a folded dishtowel or paper towel on a work surface and place a potato inside.  Gently...and i mean gently, smash the potato so that it is flattened but still in one piece.  The edges on the potato will split.  Repeat with remaining potatoes.
That guy on the end didn't make it.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  Brush a rimmed baking sheet with 1 tablespoon oil.  Place potatoes on sheet and brush tops with remaining 1 tablespoon oil.  Bake until crisp and golden, 35 minutes, flipping them halfway through.  Remove from oven, toss with vinegar and season with coarse salt.

I served these yummy potatoes with Parmesan crusted Tilapia - As good as any chippery!

  4. Looks so tempting! Love your recipe....

  5. Good gracious. Now you have my attention! :-) These sound awesome, especially with the tilapia (of which I have loads of in the freezer.) Thanks!

  6. I saw this recipe in Everyday Food and couldn't find it later. I came across your blog while searching for the ingredients and made this last night. SOOOO freaking yummy! I will definitely be making these again. I used red potatoes which gave it a little more appealing visual look in my opinion and then used malt vinegar and sea salt per the Everyday Food recipe. So good!

  7. The next time I make roasted potatoes I am definitely going to give this recipe a try. Salt and vinegar potatoes are my favorite.
