Lemon Garlic Spanish Potatoes | Easy & Delicious Potato Side Dish

Potatoes, you have to say, they´re one of the most important vegetables when it comes to side dishes. And if they´re made correctly, a star dish on your dinner table. In this post, I´m going to show you how to make one of the best potato side dishes ever. We are talking Lemon Garlic Spanish Potatoes.

These Lemon Garlic Spanish Potatoes are loaded with flavors, easy to make, like seriously, no hassels here and they come together in about 30 minutes. The perfect side dish for the holidays or any time of the year.

To make this recipe, I used baby new potatoes. These potatoes are great, because they are low in starch and they cook quicker than other potatoes. However, you can use any potatoes you like to make this dish.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: To roast the potatoes, I used the bake + broil option (bottom + top heat) in my oven. If your oven does not do both functions at the same time, no big deal. Just bake them for an extra 5 minutes, and get in there at the half way point and move them around.

Author Albert Bevia @ Spain on a Fork


  • 12 baby new potatoes
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 45 ml
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley 13 grams
  • sea salt & black pepper


  1. Wash & pat dry 12 baby new potatoes, cut each one into 4 evenly sized quarters, add the cut potatoes into a large bowl, cut a slit on 6 cloves of garlic (skin on) and add to the bowl with the potatoes, squeeze in a generous tablespoon of lemon juice over the potatoes and garlic, 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and season everything with sea salt & black pepper, mix together until well combined

  2. Transfer everything into a baking tray lined with parchment paper, make sure the potatoes and garlic are all in a single layer, drizzle any of the lemon juice and olive oil left in the bowl over the potatoes & garlic

  3. Add into a preheated oven, bake + broil option 210 C - 425 F

  4. Meanwhile, finely chop a handful of fresh parsley, add about a 1/4 cup into a bowl, using a grater, add some lemon zest from a fresh lemon over the parsley, about 1 teaspoon, set aside

  5. After 25 to 30 minutes the potatoes should be perfectly roasted, remove from the oven, remove the garlic from the pan, detach the skins from the garlic, roughly chop the roasted garlic, add to the bowl with the parsley & lemon zest, add in 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil and mix together

  6. Transfer the roasted potatoes into a large bowl, add in the parsley mixture, gently mix together until well combined

  7. Transfer everything into a serving dish, garnish with lemon wedges, serve at once, enjoy!
