Gordon serves a tasty crispy salmon filet over this New Potato Salad. Give both a try, and enjoy a gourmet meal which doesn’t take a ton of time to cook.
Heat olive oil in a large sauce pan. Add the boiled, peeled, New Potatoes to the olive oil and cook briefly to lightly heat the potatoes. Remove from heat, and crush the potatoes with a fork. You don’t want to thoroughly mash them at this point, just crush them up a bit.
Chop the green onions, using the entire onion (top and bottom) and add to potatoes. Season the potatoes lightly with salt and pepper, add the crab meat, and mix everything together. Add a healthy amount of vinaigrette dressing, and then the chopped parsley. Mix everything again, and you’re done! Serve with Crispy Salmon for a complete meal, or use your favorite main course to add your own flair.
Note: Gordon Ramsay says during the video that the vinaigrette he uses in all his restaurants consists of olive oil, water, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. He doesn’t specify and ratios, but you can experiment if you’d like to use the same vinaigrette as him.

Gordon Ramsay made these potatoes to go along with his Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb on The F Word, Series One, Episode One.
His commies used a Mandoline Slicer to get uniformly thin slices of potatoes, but used a knife for the onion. You can use a knife or a slicer for both, but try to get the slices as even as possible.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (392 degrees if you have a digital oven)
Bring the chicken stock to a boil and add thyme, rosemary, and crushed garlic cloves. Simmer a few minutes and strain (remember, retain the chicken stock, not the herbs). Set aside.
Add olive oil to a hot heavy pan and saute the onions and finely chopped garlic until softened and lightly colored.
Coat the inside of a casserole dish or oven safe pan and layer the onions followed by the potatoes. Continue alternating potatoes and onions until finished. Don’t forget to season each layer with salt & pepper as you go.
Pour the chicken stock from earlier over the potato mixture until it’s about 2/3rds full. Press down on the mixture to help the potatoes absorb as much stock as possible. Drizzle a little olive oil on top.
Bake in the oven for approximately 20 – 25 minutes or until soft and golden on top.
