Method

Inspired by the vinegar-based traditional potato salads of Bavaria, often made with onions or shallots, mustard and sprinkled with dill.   Usually served room temperature, but never hot.

  1. Mix together the pork marinade ingredients. Add the pork to a large plastic food bag, add the marinade, seal and leave for at least half an hour (or ideally overnight) in the fridge.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the potato salad; gently mix all the ingredients together with the cooked potatoes.
  3. Heat a griddle pan over a high , reduce the heat to moderate and cook the pork medallions for 2 minutes on each side then serve with the potato salad.

Alex Mackay's Roast King Edwards with Lamb Cutlets, Smoked Paprika, Peppers, Onions & Olives

"The first time I discovered smoked paprika was on roast potatoes served as tapas with smoked paprika mayonnaise. Before then, I'd assumed chorizo was spiced with plain paprika and then the whole sausage was smoked. It was a revelation and I've had a long lasting smoked paprika period since then. I serve the potatoes and pepper mixture with lamb as a little celebration of Spring."
