  1. Preheat the grill to the highest setting. In a medium saucepan of salted water, bring the potatoes to the boil and then simmer for 8 mins, until tender. Drain the cooked potatoes and mix with the lemon zest, some seasoning and a drizzle of olive oil. Then line a baking tray with foil, spread out the potatoes and grill for 6-7 mins. Turn the potatoes then grill for another 6-7 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, coat the pork slices in the paprika and lightly season. Heat a large frying pan and add the butter. Once it has stopped sizzling, add the pork and cook for 2 mins each side, then transfer to a plate. Add the shallots, mushrooms and garlic to the pan and cook for 5 mins stirring occasionally. Add the wine and crème fraîche, then return the pork to the pan and bring to a simmer. Cook for 2-3 mins.
  3. To serve, divide the potatoes between the plates with the pork and the sauce and garnish with the watercress.
