- 50 g butter, soft
- 2 kg Maris Piper potatoes, peeled
- 1½ l boiling water
- 1 heaped tablespoon of Marigold Swiss vegetable stock powder
The potatoes can be prepared 2 hours in advance until ready to go in the oven. Brush well with broth and butter to prevent them from discoloring.
- Brush the baking sheet generously with butter.
- Using the fine blade of a food processor or a sharp knife, slice the potatoes, separating any slices that are stuck together.
- Pour the boiling water into a large pot and whisk in the bouillon powder.
- Add the potatoes, cover, bring to the boil and cook for 2 minutes.
- Using a fish slice, transfer the potatoes to the baking tray and add some of the broth to each portion.
- Spread the potatoes evenly on the baking sheet. Don’t try to stack the layers neatly on top of each other like you would with a gratin—this is a fluffy, bakery-style dish.
- Discard any remaining broth or use it as a soup base.
- Season potatoes.
- Place the tray in the oven for the last 30 minutes of the pork cooking time (or cook separately in a preheated oven at 170°C/Gas 4/fan for 30 minutes).
- After 30 minutes, increase the heat to 220°C/gas 7/fan 200°C and cook for a further 25-35 minutes.
- Cut the potatoes into 8 portions and serve straight from the tray, lifting them out along with a slice of fish.
- They won’t look neat, but they will taste divine.
