corn butter et al Chef Lisa AronsonChef Lisa graciously invited us to a scrumptious seaside feast and we were there to watch her work her culinary magic.

You can catch the full episode by clicking here and you can enjoy her recipe for a delicious part of our meal - the Warm Potato Salad.

It was incredibly delicious with our lobster lunch, but would be the perfect vegetable dish to serve with all your barbequed chicken and steak this summer too.

Thanks for sharing Chef Lisa - you're the bees knees!!!

fiddle heads in panOnce cool flatten with your palm so they look smashed but still hold together.

Steam or simmer fiddle heads until just cooked. Remove from simmering water and cool down in ice water, to prevent further/over cooking

In a large pan melt butter, add onions then garlic to sautee until cooked, add the potatoes, and sausage continue to cook until the potatoes are warmed through.

At this point you can deglaze the pan with white wine.

Add the fiddle heads and peppers continue to cook until hot.

To finish add the lemon juice, zest, basil and season with salt and pepper.
