Bake baby or medium potatoes: wash the skin, prick it, wrap in foil and pop on the coals or into an oven for 40 minutes.


Remove from the oven and press down on the soft potatoes with the back of a metal or wooden spoon so that they flatten.


Drizzle with olive oil, season with sea salt and bake for a further 10 – 15 minutes.
