Ingredients
  • 2 cups kosher salt
  • Several turns coarsely ground black pepper
  • 4 fresh rosemary sprigs, ripped in pieces
  • 4 fresh thyme sprigs, ripped in pieces
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 small yellow potatoes, such as fingerling or Yukon, rinsed, scrubbed, and patted dry
Directions

Combine the salt, pepper, and herbs in a large bowl. Pour the oil into a large cast iron skillet and set over medium-high flame or charcoal grill. When the oil reaches a slight smoke, add the potatoes in a single layer and fry until they get nice and crackled on all sides. Cover the potatoes completely with the salt mixture, and cook for about 1 hour until the salt forms a cooked crust and the potatoes are tender. Break open the crust to serve.
