Step 1 Place potatoes into a large saucepan of water, cover and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and gently boil, uncovered, for 10–12 minutes until just tender. Drain, refresh in cold water and halve potatoes lengthways. Set aside.
Step 2 Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and cook, turning occasionally, for 5–6 minutes until golden. Add green onions, garlic, lemon juice and add half the chopped parsley. Season with pepper to taste and gently toss to combine. Spoon into a serving bowl, sprinkle with remaining parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
