Spread the coarse salt out evenly across a large baking tray. Wash the potatoes and place them on top of the salt, then bake in the oven for 45 minutes or until cooked through.

  • 1 pinch of salt

Meanwhile, pass the reserved potato insides through a sieve into a pan. Stir in the milk, crème fraîche, chives and the remaining 50g of butter, mixing well until the potato is smooth and creamy.
