About this recipe: The Spanish cook many things on rock salt, which imparts an incredible texture and flavour. Try these canape Cypriot potatoes.

Serves: 12 

  • 1kg small Cypriot potatoes
  • rock salt, as needed
  • 250g salted butter
  • 300ml full fat cremé frâiche
  • 1 pot cod or salmon roe

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Take the smallest Cypriot potatoes and scrub well, leaving the skins on.
  2. Bake them in your oven at 200 C / Gas 6 on a bed of rock salt. This makes the skins shrivel up and the insides soft.
  3. After 30 to 40 minutes, when the insides are soft (test this by inserting a skewer), take them out.
  4. Slit open the top and scoop in a teaspoon of salted butter, a tablespoon of cremé frâiche and top with some cod or salmon roe or, if for a special occasion, proper caviar.
