Recipe by Ppaperdoll

I made these potatoes for my first Christmas dinner and have made them every year since. The lemon and sea salt give them a really nice flavor.

I enjoyed the subtle taste of lemon in this recipe. When I make it again, I will use more lemon, so that the flavor is throughout the dish. I used new red potatoes, and cut them in quarters. I did not find it necessary to parboil them.
