Recipe for chilli and honey roasted potatoes – a lovely side dish

1 Medium Potato (180g), cut in half lengthwise (with skin)
2 tsp. Olive Oil
1 Tbs. Honey
1/2 tsp. Chilli Powder
1/2 tsp. Smoked Paprika
1/2 tsp. Harissa Spice
½ tsp. Himalayan Salt
Ground Black Pepper, to taste
1 Small Lime, halved
Handful of Fresh Parsley, chopped

How to
Preheat oven to 200°C. Brush each potato half with olive oil and season with salt and ground black pepper.

Score the inside flesh with a knife to form a checkered block pattern.

Season each top half with chilli powder, paprika and harissa.

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 200°C and remove from oven and smear honey over the inside flesh.

Return to oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes until the flesh is soft but the skin is crispy.

Squeeze fresh lime juice over both halves upon serving, and sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley.
