The flavour of olives works beautifully with both potatoes and salmon. So it’s no surprise that these mini jacket potatoes topped with olives, smoked salmon and sour cream are completely irresistible. (And they’re so cute too!) Jacket potatoes have come to be thought of as, well, a bit boring. But it’s not their fault! There are plenty of ways to make the fillings more interesting than beans and cheese or tuna and sweetcorn. They also have the potential to be far more elegant than you may have imagined. In fact, it’s perhaps time to rethink what jacket potatoes are all about… One quick (and effective) change is to switch to using baby potatoes rather than large baking potatoes. It instantly switches the jacket’s appeal! Being bite-sized, they look wonderful on a warm buffet at a winter event. The colours (and flavours) make quite an impression. Of course, they work equally well as a side or light meal too. Try them with a salad or along with a simple fish dish. The mix of olives filled with anchovy, salmon, sour cream, chives and leek brings together an array of exceptional flavours, all perfectly complementing one another. It goes beautifully with the texture of the potato, which also works to balance the wonderfully rich flavours. They say eating starts with the eyes, and these mini delights will certainly capture attention. And their visual appeal is matched by the incredible taste. Because although these jacket potatoes may be small, they are totally packed with flavour.
