Salt-Roasted Potatoes with Herby Salsa Verde


Preheat oven to 425°.

Pour salt into a baking dish or cast-iron pan.

Nestle bay leaves and potatoes evenly in the bed of salt. Pierce through the skin of each potato with a toothpick or the tip of a paring knife for steam to release. Roast until potato skins are wrinkly and crisp and the insides are tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Reserve bay salt for another use.

While potatoes roast, make salsa verde. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together olive oil, chopped herbs, orange juice, and lemon juice and zest. Season with salt to taste.

When potatoes are done, remove from salt bed and transfer to the mixing bowl with salsa verde. Toss to coat, salt to taste using leftover bay salt, and serve warm.
