Jersey Royal Coronation Canapés

What better way to celebrate His Majesty’s crowning than with Coronation Chicken! The toppings are twists on Great British classics, easy to make and absolutely delicious.

Makes around 20 generous sized canapés

Prep time 30 minutes  

Cook time 30 minutes


500g Jersey Royal potatoes

1 tsp olive oil

Salt and pepper


1.       Preheat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas mark 6.  Rub the olive oil over the potatoes, place in a roasting tin and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Cook for 25 minutes or until a skewer goes easily through the potato.  Remove from the oven.

2.       When cool enough to handle (they are best served warm) cut in half along the length, squash slightly so that the topping will sit on the potatoes more easily. Top each half and garnish appropriately.

For the coronation chicken;

Combine 30g mayonnaise with 30g natural Greek yogurt, 1 tbsp medium curry powder, 1 tbsp peach or mango chutney, 1 tbsp sultanas with 125g cooked skinless chicken breast diced. To garnish; a few toasted, flaked almonds.

For the prawn cocktail;

Combine 50g mayonnaise with 1 tbsp tomato ketchup, zest 1 small lemon, juice of half lemon, 1 tbsp dill leaves, black pepper and 75g small cooked and shelled prawns. To garnish; extra dill.

For the beetroot humus;

Use a food processor to blitz together 120g drained canned chickpeas and 2 cooked beetroot (around 125g). Add 40g tahini, 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tsp lemon juice and blitz again. Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with parsley leaves.  This makes more than enough topping but the extra will keep in the fridge for a few days and is great with pitta bread or as a dip.

Jersey Royal And Mushroom Skewers

The umami flavours of the dressing make these vegetable skewers a hit.  If you prefer you can swap the honey for agave or maple syrup to make this dish fully vegan.

Serves 4, 2 skewers each

Prep time 20 minutes  

Cook time 20-25 minutes


300g Jersey Royal potatoes, cut into chunks

250g shitake or sliced portabello mushrooms

8 baby courgettes, halved

8 radishes, halved

1 tbsp vegetable oil

For the dressing;

1 tbsp miso

30ml tamari or good soy sauce

1 tsp honey

Splash water 

For the pickled radishes;

25ml white wine vinegar mixed with 25ml water

2 tsp sugar

6 radishes, sliced

1 tsp seaweed sprinkle to garnish


1.       For the pickled radishes warm the vinegar, water and sugar in a small pan until the sugar dissolves.  Place the radishes in a bowl and pour over  the vinegar.  Set aside for 10 minutes or cool, cover and chill for up to 24 hours.

2.       Bring a pan of water to the boil add the potatoes and cook for around 10 minutes until just tender. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop them cooking further.  Combine the dressing ingredients adding enough water to just slacken the mixture.

3.       Thread the potatoes, mushrooms, courgettes and radish halves onto the skewers.  Brush with the oil.  Heat a griddle pan until really hot and cook the skewers in batches for 2-3 minutes until the mushrooms have softened, brush over the dressing and cook for another minute until beginning to char.  Sprinkle with the seaweed and serve with the pickled radishes and any remaining dressing.

Jersey Royal Brownie With Peanut Butter & Salted Caramel

An unlikely combination but it works a dream! No celebration is complete without a sweet treat – try something different and surprise your guests with these decadent brownies.

Makes:12 pieces
Prep time:15 minutes
Cook time:30-32 minutes


275g Jersey Royal potatoes, scrubbed but left whole
75g butter
75g crunchy peanut butter
200g dark chocolate, chopped
200g brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
110g self-raising flour
40g cocoa
25g salted peanuts, roughly chopped
Jersey salted caramel to serve


1.       Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the potatoes, and cook for 10-12 minutes until tender. Drain and run under cold water until cool enough to handle. Pull off any loose bits of skin and then finely grate the potatoes.

2.       Line a 20cm square baking tin. Preheat the oven to fan 160ºC/180ºC/gas mark 6.

3.       In a large pan, gently melt the butter, peanut butter and chocolate, stirring regularly to combine and stop the chocolate catching on the bottom.  Remove from the heat.

4.       Use an electric whisk to beat the sugar and eggs for a few minutes until they are thick. Fold in the chocolate mixture until well combined, then gradually fold in the grated potatoes. Sift over the flour and cocoa and fold into the mix. Spoon into the baking tray and scatter over the peanuts. Bake for 20 minutes until just cooked but still a little wobbly. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Cut into squares and serve with the Jersey Salted caramel.
