Black Pudding, Fried New Potatoes & Peas

Black Pudding, Fried New Potatoes & Peas



Never mind, longer evenings, cherry blossoms, or an abundance of bank holidays. Spring’s arrival means one important thing. New season = New potatoes.

Boil’em, mash ’em, stick’em in stew!  I love those little critters!

I’m guilty of always cooking up a spare 10-15 new potatoes just so there is a handful ready for frying, in case of a fried potato emergency! What’s that?! You too…Hello friend. Welcome! You’re in good company here – this Scullery is a safe place!

The dish below brings together new potatoes, fresh peas in a pod and rich spiced black pudding. The spices seep out of the fried pudding to season the oil, crisping up new potatoes as they soak up all the flavour from the pudding. The green peas add a fresh, sweet flavour to cut through the richness of the pudding and fried potatoes. I first came across this recipe when the lovely folks over at Deli Muru made the dish using some of my Black Pudding after their first Inns Market outing!

We’ve used our SculleryMade Black Lava pudding here because it’s seasoned with chili and smoked paprika which gives a rich, smokey, spicy flavour to the dish. If you can’t get hold of our Black Lava, try adding a teaspoon of smoked paprika and a chopped birdseye chilli to the pan when frying your pudding.

All together, this dish pairs nicely with our smokey, spicy Chicken Thigh Hot Pot in Tomato, Fennel & Lemon Sauce… Bueno!

Slice the Black Pudding into 0.5inch thick slices and fry on a medium heat, turning over to crisp on both sides.




While the pudding is frying, slice the cooked new potatoes.

Remove the pudding from the pan and leave to one side. Use the hot oil from the pudding to cook the potato slices until they are crispy on both sides.

While the potatoes are frying, boil the peas in their pods for 3-4 minutes and drain.

Add the peas in a pod to the potatoes and crumble the cooked black pudding through the mixtures and cook for an additional 2 minutes before serving warm.
