    How to make it

Season with salt and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook until tender when pierced with a knife, 10-12 minutes. Let cool slightly, then using the bottom of a measuring cup or glass, smash each potato until 0.5-1cm thick.

    2. Transfer smashed potatoes to a sheet pan and toss gently with 2 tbsp olive oil and laky salt. Roast, flipping halfway through, until golden brown and crisp, approx. 30 minutes.
