Creamy roasted fingerling potatoes are served simply with sea salt, Aleppo and lemon for a rustic dish with big flavor.
I love to prepare these creamy spuds simply with sea salt, Aleppo and lemon. This recipe is simple and rustic, with a twist from the Aleppo pepper. Aleppo peppers are crushed chilis with a pleasantly tart flavor. The tangy heat from the Aleppo pepper is perfect with potatoes. Instead of regular lemons, meyer lemons are nice too.
