Preserved lemons give this dish a complex brightness. Although they require very little prep time, they do need to steep in their brine for at least 10 days. Don't let that stop you from making this recipe; store-bought preserved lemons are available at many specialty food markets and kalustyans.com.

  • Meanwhile, whisk together mustard, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and egg yolk in a medium bowl to combine. Slowly whisk in oil until mixture is thickened and emulsified. Whisk in lemon juice. Rinse preserved lemons in cold water. Remove and discard any lemon flesh and cut rind into small pieces (you should have 1/4 cup).

  • While potatoes are still slightly warm, cut in half and smear a small dollop of aioli on each cut side. Arrange on a serving platter and garnish with preserved lemons, poppy seeds, and chives.
