Excellent dish. As other reviewers have mentioned, the capers really are special in this. We love them, so used much more than called for (also used more shallot and less butter like others) and just a sprinkle of the salt. All the flavors went really well together to make this super delicious. We had this as our only side dish, so it served about 4 for us. I can see why this went into someone's best of the year cookbook, it was that good!
Wonderful & full of flavor! DH said we need to have friends over soon to wow them with your red potatoes. I too sliced & roasted my potatoes because I wanted some color on them. I also forgot the parmesan, but will not next time. I served the potatoes with blackened catfish & roasted asparagus. What a fantastic meal thank you so much for posting your recipe!
YUMMY ! Had some baby reds and good shallots, looking for a new way to serve. Couldn't put potatoes directly on oven rack, too small ! It worked to put them on cookie cooling rack. Cut the butter to 1/4 cup and diced 2 shallots. Taters soft at 30 min, combined everything and put on warming spot on range top while I got everything else together. Served with sauteed scallops and shrimp, and chard from the garden. Lovely, easy prep. Thanks for posting, Rita !
This is quite a unique sauce recipe that is similar to piccata sauce used on chicken and fish. I baked the taters by cutting them in half first. I used green onion (on hand). Otherwise made to specs. Like the others, we also forgot the parmesan cheese. Hopefully next time we won't. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
