Baked lamb shoulder with Hasselback potatoes

Published by Miguel on 26/05/17

We use as garnish Hasselback potatoes, baked together with the lamb.

The Hasselback potatoes recipe originates from Hasselbacken, a Swedish restaurant.

Basic preparation: cut the potatoes into slices, be sure not to slice all the way trough. Season to taste. The season penetrates into the cuts and the potatoes turn out crisp on the outside and tender on the inside.

  • ½ onion
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • garlic powder
