  • 15 baby new potatoes
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise 125 grams
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp hot smoked Spanish paprika 2.30 grams
  • 1 tsp lemon juice 5 ml
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 15 ml
  • handful fresh chives
  • pinch sea salt
  • dash black pepper
  • 15 toothpicks


  1. Give the potatoes a quick rinse under cold water to remove any excess dirt, then add them into a stock pot, all in a single layer, fill with cold water, to about 1 inch (2.50 cm) over the potatoes, season generously with sea salt and heat it with a high heat

  2. Meanwhile, add 1/2 cup mayonnaise into a medium sized bowl, finely grate in 1 large clove of garlic, add in 1 tsp hot smoked Spanish paprika, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and season with sea salt & black pepper, whisk together until creamy and set aside

  3. Once the potatoes are fully cooked through (it was exactly 25 minutes in my case, you can always pierce them with a toothpick, if it easily goes in they are ready), remove them from the heat and drain into a strainer, shake off any of the excess water

  4. Add the potatoes into a serving dish, all in a single layer

  5. Transfer the spicy sauce into a small plastic bag, cut off the tip and squeeze a generous portion over each potato, then pierce each one with a toothpick and sprinkle with finely chopped chives, enjoy!
