      Okay, this just cracked me up to put a damp towel over my boiling potatoes!!! LOVED these with the Mojo Picon Mojo Picon (Garlic Sauce)! I used 1/4 cup sea salt because I was leary (okay, I was scared!) to use more. But no problem! I'd brave 1/3 cup next time. :)

      Finding your recipe just brought me back to my childhood at "Las Mesas" in Las Palmas. I make this almost every week but I add after they are done tiny diced garlic with olive oil and pimenton to make like a dressing. Thank you for posting this recipe.
