Ingredients:  
2 lbs. fingerling or baby potatoes
1/4 c. olive oil, plus extra, as needed
3 cloves garlic, peeled and halved
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions:
For the potatoes: Put the potatoes in an 8-quart stockpot with enough cold water to cover by at least 2 inches. Bring the water to a boil over medium heat and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. Drain the potatoes in a colander and allow to dry for 5 minutes. Using the palm of your hand, gently press the potatoes until lightly smashed.
In a large, nonstick skillet, heat 1/4 cup of oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant and lightly brown, about 1 minute. Remove the garlic and discard. In batches, add the potatoes and cook, without stirring, until the bottoms turn golden brown, about 5 to 8 minutes. Using a spatula, turn the potatoes over and cook, drizzling with oil, if needed, until golden brown on the other side for another 5 to 8 minutes.
For the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, parsley, thyme, and lemon zest. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Spoon the dressing over the potatoes and toss gently until coated. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Transfer the potatoes to a serving bowl and serve.
