1 1/4 lbs

small fingerling potatoes, cleaned
fresh ground black pepper
freshly chopped scallion, green part only
- In a large pot, combine the salt, water, and potatoes and bring to a boil.
- Cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, about 25 to 30 minutes.
- Remove from the pot to a cooling rack and let stand for 5 to 7 minutes. The salt crystals will form on the outside of the potatoes.
- Serve as is, or with butter, pepper, chopped scallions, or Parmesan cheese.
