Cook the new potatoes in a large pan of lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes, or until tender. Drain well.

“ Sublime. I cook them in foil, grate a tangerine over, squeeze over the juice as well as lots of cracked black pepper and a pinch of sea salt . . . If you like extra flavour, a small amount of grated ginger with grated lime & lime juice as an alternative. ”
