From the Test Kitchen

WHY WE LOVE THIS DISH
To pair with dynamic shrimp sandwiches—layered with crunchy pickles and a tangy caper sauce—we're making a side of loaded fingerling potatoes, first roasted with our classic weeknight hero spice blend, then finished with crispy pancetta, rich sour cream (seasoned with even more of the spice blend), and verdant chives for a fresh finish.
