Once the potatoes are cool, with your hands smash the potatoes and place on a baking sheet. Place the potatoes at least 1/2" apart from each other.
Drizzle olive oil, lemon zest and herbs over potatoes. Then sprinkle salt and pepper generously over the top. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes until edges are crunchy and golden. You can flip potatoes at about 10 minutes to get even browning.
