Baked Dutch Cream potatoes with sour cream and horseradish

all details

This is a variation on traditional baked potatoes, with an extra, crisp textural dimension. Fresh horseradish really makes the difference here, adding depth of flavour and a subtle touch of heat. You can use any good baking potato.

Ingredients

16 medium Dutch Cream potatoes, skin on

600g rock salt

vegetable oil for deep frying

flaked salt

freshly ground pepper

200g sour cream

1 horseradish root

Method

1. Cover the base of a baking tray with rock salt and place potatoes on top. Bake for 1 hour at 180C, remove from oven to cool.

2. Take potatoes off the salt and break open with fingers lengthways, leaving them roughly butterflied.

3. Deep-fry at 180C until golden, about 4 minutes. Don't crowd the fryer, as you want the potatoes to remain split so that all the rough edges become crisp. Frying with the cut side facing down helps to keep them open.

4. Place potatoes on a platter, season with salt and pepper, dollop on sour cream and grate horseradish over the top.
