Summer is here for a couple more weeks, and that means there’s still time for a few more backyard dinners before the season is over. These tangy Crispy Lemon and Herb Idaho® Fingerling Potatoes are simple to prepare and pair wonderfully with grilled or pan fried meats, fish or summer veggies. Made with Idaho® fingerling potatoes and an herb lemon marinade prepared with olive oil, lemon juice and zest, fresh herbs like thyme and parsley, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, these potatoes are a heavenly combination of tart and savory flavors. To prep the potatoes, make sure to steam them until they are “fork tender” and then press each potato after they have cooled to expose the inner flesh. This will ensure the potatoes will evenly soak up the marinade after they’re fried. Pro tip: If you don’t have a fryer on hand, you can use a deep pot, a slotted fry spoon and a probe or candy thermometer to gauge the temperature of the oil.
