This Scandinavian side dish marries potatoes with spinach and capers to pack a real flavour punch, and goes perfectly with baked or poached fish.

Boil the potatoes for 10 minutes or until just tender, then drain.

Meanwhile, heat the butter and oil in a sauté pan, add the onions and fry for 5 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and capers and fry for another minute. Next, add the potatoes and crush lightly with the back of a fork.

Add the spinach and stir until it has just wilted. Squeeze over the lemon juice, season, then serve.
