Introduction

The dressing for this dish is unusual, and somewhat addictive – smoky chilli peanuts combined with fresh tarragon, along with crisp barbecued potatoes. You could easily use this as a dressing for grilled sweetcorn or mushrooms.

Ingredients

600g new potatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sea salt flakes
For the dressing:
10g fresh tarragon, leaves finely chopped
30g unsalted peanuts, finely chopped
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
A pinch of chipotle chilli flakes
A pinch of sea salt flakes

Method

Boil the potatoes in salted water for 7–8 minutes, until just cooked through. Drain well, then mix with the olive oil and sea salt flakes.

Mix together the tarragon, peanuts, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, chipotle flakes and sea salt flakes to make the dressing. Taste and adjust the salt as needed, then set aside.

Once your barbecue is good and hot, griddle the potatoes for 5–8 minutes per side, until nicely charred.

Halve the barbecued new potatoes, mix with the tarragon dressing, and serve hot.
