Total time: 
  • 900 g mashing potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • coarse cooking salt
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained and coarsely chopped
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan and fill with enough water to cover potatoes by 2 - 3 cm then bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Add a generous amount of salt, reduce the heat to a simmer and continue cooking until potatoes are tender when pierced ( about 15 minutes).
  3. Drain and mash potatoes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine 3 tablespoons butter, milk, lemon juice, zest, and capers. Heat until butter is melted and the mixture is warm to the touch.
