Method

1
Stir together all of the ingredients for the chilli and lime butter, mixing well to make sure everything is well distributed

Rinse the potatoes. Leave the smaller ones whole, and halve any larger ones. Boil the potatoes in plenty of salted water until tender, for about 10-15 minutes. Drain well in a colander and allow to steam-dry for 5 minutes
