Salt-Crusted Fingerlings

Total Time:

Yield:
4 to 6 servings
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 pounds fingerling potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 5 to 6 turns fresh ground black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, unpeeled
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
Directions
  • In a heavy-bottomed, wide saute pan over high heat, add the potatoes and just barely cover with cold water. Add the olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, thyme and bay leaves. Bring to a boil and then simmer uncovered until just tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Lower the heat and continue to cook, keeping a watchful eye, so the water evaporates completely and the potatoes are left covered in salt, about 30 minutes. Once the water has evaporated, cook for 3 to 4 minutes, lightly tossing; the oil left in the pan will help prevent the potatoes from sticking. Remove the potatoes from the pan, discard the herbs and garlic and serve.
