Diced potatoes or potato wedges roasted in oven and then flavored with a lemon garlic dressing. It is one of the BEST side dishes for fish.



Roasting Potatoes:

  • 2 and ½ pound (1.1kg) potatoes (Yukon or russet)

  • 2 green peppers
  • 1 red pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh dill, chopped


1 lemon, squeezed

  1. Preheat oven to 400F/200C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and put it aside.
  2. Cut the potatoes into 1-inch cubes and spread them evenly on the baking sheet. 
  3. Sprinkle salt and drizzle olive oil over the potatoes. Toss to evenly coat. 
  4. If you want, place the peppers on the baking sheet too.
  5. Bake the potatoes until fork-tender and golden, for about 30-35 minutes. 
  6. Transfer the potatoes into a large bowl. 
  7. Remove the seeds of the roasted peppers, chop them and add into the same bowl.
