Ingredients

  • small Jersey Royals 400g, whole 
  • white crab meat 100g
  • cherry tomatoes 6, finely chopped
  • spring onions 1, finely chopped
  • red chilli ½, finely chopped
  • coriander a handful, chopped
  • lime 1, zested and juiced
  • olive oil

Method

  • Step 1

    Put the potatoes in a single layer in a deep frying pan with 2 tbsp salt and enough water to cover them, then bring to a simmer and keep cooking for about 30-40 minutes, or until the water has evaporated. (Roll the potatoes around occasionally to make sure they’re cooked throughout.)

  • Step 2

    Mix the crab meat with the remaining ingredients and add enough oil to make it spoonable. Serve the potatoes in a pile and give each person a small bowl of the dip.
