  • Chives finely chopped (adjust to taste)

  • Step 4: The Golden Bake
    Drizzle your beautifully smashed potatoes with olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt.
    Slide into the preheated oven; bake for 20 minutes or until they're soft within and have crisp, golden edges.
  • Step 5: The Crowning Glory
    Once baked to perfection, remove them from the oven and plate up those golden beauties.
    Top each potato with a dollop of Crème Fraîche, and then lovingly add the fish roe.
    Sprinkle chives for that final culinary caress.
