Warm Potato and Fennel Bulb Salad with Lemon-Butter Sauce Recipe

A recipe from Le Creuset is perfect to change up the salad menu. The trick is to dress those potatoes while they are still warm so they suck up the flavours of the lemony-garlic butter.

EQUIPMENT

INGREDIENTS

  • 20 baby potatoes, cut in half
  • 1 large red onion, cut into wedges
  • 4 fennel bulbs, trimmed, cut into 4cm pieces and leaves reserved
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 180g butter
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Juice of 1 lemon

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 220ºC.
  2. Place potatoes, onion and fennel in a Le Creuset Stoneware Rectangular Dish. Drizzle over the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss with your hands, ensuring all of the vegetables are well coated.
  3. Roast for 30–40 minutes, turning the vegetables just once, until the potatoes are cooked through and starting to brown slightly.
  4. Remove from the oven and transfer to a large Platter.
  5. Heat the butter and garlic in a small pot over medium heat, bringing the butter to a gentle simmer. Add lemon juice to taste and season with salt and pepper. Spoon as much of the lemon-butter sauce as you need over the warm vegetables, and stir to combine.
  6. Garnish with the reserved fennel leaves. This dish can be prepared several hours in advance and heated for serving.
