A fast and easy side dish that pairs deliciously with fish or chicken, bursting with spring flavor!


  • 1 - 1 1/2 pounds baby red Idaho® potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons Litehouse® freeze-dried dill  
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Lemon zest from one medium lemon


  1. Cover the potatoes in salted water in a medium pot, bring to a simmer and cook until fork tender, about 20 minutes, more or less depending on size. Add the dill the last 5 minutes of cooking. 
  2. Drain the potatoes, using a fine mesh strainer and place them back into the pot, tapping the strainer to release the dill into the pot as well.
  3. Turn heat to low, stir in the butter, coating the potatoes well. 
  4. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the zest of one lemon. 
  5. Serve warm.
