New Potatoes with Lemon Butter and Fresh Herbs
- 2 Tbs. unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. paprika
- 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
- 2 1/2 lb. small new potatoes, unpeeled
- 1 Tbs. finely chopped fresh basil
- 1 Tbs. finely chopped fresh chives
In a roasting pan, stir together the butter, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, paprika and pepper. Add the potatoes and, using a large spoon, coat the potatoes evenly with the butter mixture.
Roast the potatoes, turning every 15 minutes, until tender and golden brown, about 45 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Garnish with the basil and chives and serve immediately.
