Warm Dressing:


In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain potatoes and let cool; pat dry. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate potatoes in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

On cutting board and using heavy saucepan, gently smash each potato to about 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness. Arrange on greased baking sheet. Brush with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Roast in 425°F (220°C) oven until crispy and edges are browned, turning halfway through, about 35 minutes. Arrange on platter.

Warm Dressing: Meanwhile, in small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic until light brown, about 5 minutes.

Stir in capers; cook for 1 minute. Stir in 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the parsley and sherry; cook for 30 seconds. Spoon over potatoes; sprinkle with remaining parsley.
