Made two changes (if you want to call them that) ~ I cut the recipe in half for the 2 of us & then did not peel the potatoes since we like the flavor of the skins! Otherwise I followed the recipe & we were very pleased with the potatoes! Had a few pieces left over, as well, & they were great as a cold snack! Thanks for a great keeper, as I'll be making these 'tatoes again! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars recipe tag]
I have a glut of lemons and limes and this was a wonderful way to use some of this abundance. Made as written, although I did baste the potatoes regularly to make sure the oniony, lemony, limey, herby goodness was spread around. Served with your Spicy Thai Scallops With Lime & Chili.
I cut this recipe in half being there are only two us. Loved the lemon/lime flavor, had shallots and they added to the flavor. I did cut the water back and was happy with the results.
