Ingredients

Potatoes:

Cilantro Garlic Sauce:

Garnish:

Directions

  1. For the potatoes: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Heat the butter in a large cast-iron, heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat.
  3. Toss the potatoes with the olive oil, salt, pepper and cumin. Add the potatoes to the pan cut-side down. Cook, without touching or turning, until golden and seared, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast until the potatoes have a soft center and deep golden crust, 18 to 20 minutes.
  4. For the cilantro garlic sauce: Meanwhile, mix together the cilantro, garlic, lime zest, lime juice, jalapeño, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl, then set aside.
  5. Remove the potatoes from the oven and place on a platter. Drizzle over the sauce, then garnish with the cilantro and sea salt to serve.
