My favorite restaurant in the Florida Keys (shout out to 7 Mile Grill!) was a Greek/American fusion. As a potato enthusiast, I took to their traditional Greek lemon potatoes instantly. I wanted to make my own here on the island to let my taste buds take a stroll down a most appetizing memory lane. Alas, I was out of lemons. But I had key limes aplenty! So I threw together what appeared to be the most common ingredients for Greek lemon potatoes based on some quick research online, substituting key limes for lemons. I was pleased with the outcome.

Ingredients:

8 small red potatoes, 2 large key limes, 5 garlic cloves, olive oil, oregano, sea salt, pepper, fresh chives

Serves: 2 people

Directions:

  • Wedge the potatoes.
  • Steam the potatoes in a pot with a shallow amount of water.
  • Once the water has boiled off, pour in the olive oil. You will need a lot, so don’t skimp! 1/3 cup might be sufficient but use your judgment. Stir well with the burner on low.
  • Squeeze the key lime juice onto the potatoes.
  • Mince the garlic and add to the pot along with the spices.
  • Top with some fresh chives for a flare of oniony taste.
  • Serve, eat, enjoy!
