This made a great potato side to serve with Grilled Honey-Balsamic Salmon. The recipe was reduced to 3 servings with leftovers being used in eggs the following morning for breakfast. The carrots were baby cut carrots that were cut into thin strips and the smallest potatoes I could find needed cutting in quarters. The recipe goes together quickly and looks very colorful.
Enjoyed these potatoes a lot! I thought I had more than a pound of new potatoes peeled so I doubled the butter, tomato paste, and dill mixture. Used fresh dill, 2 teaspoons of minced garlic, and baby carrots that I sliced. Next time I would add a little more dill and not cook my potatoes until the broke when I inserted a fork. The carrots were tender crisp and the potatoes browned a bit, the butter mixture is definitely a winner. I did add a sprinkle of fresh ground pepper and kosher salt, cooked in my electric skillet, and served with Lainey6605's Stuffed Bell Pepper Casserole. Thank you so much MarraMamba for posting this great potato recipe.
Very nice concoction! Served with a grilled chicken, and a great meal was had by all! Didn't have baby potatoes, used Yukon Gold and diced as suggested. Lovely color combination, and that sauce is quite the tasty little thing! I would NEVER have thought to put dill and tomato paste together, but wow--it was really good! Nice surprise!!
