I’m not a big lemon fan, so I didn’t include the wedges of lemon when I made these potatoes. But if you like lemons, go for it. And because I didn’t have lemons, I also didn’t use the lemon zest. I did use the lemon juice though. I think that helps with the browning of the potatoes.
These potatoes turned out really good! They were nice and crispy on the outside and very moist on the inside.
The sprinkling of the fresh mint on top gave these potatoes a little bit of an ethnic flair to them. Along with the blackened tilapia and the radish & cucumber salsa, it was delectable.
Besides being delicious and very Weight Watchers friendly, only 3 Points Plus Value per serving, the best part about this recipe is how darn easy it is to make.
So before you head out to the grocery store, print out this recipe. Go ahead and print out my recipe for the blackened tilapia with radish & cucumber relish too. You won’t be disappointed. It’s a very fresh and satisfying meal for the whole family.
