Wrinkled Potatoes (Papas Arrugadas)

Wrinkled Potatoes (Papas Arrugadas) created by Canarybird

These rather dry little potatoes are served with almost every meal on the Canary Islands. They use a small potao with a light brown skin, but unless you have access to a specially market, use golf-ball size red or white new potatoes. Large grained sea salt is the secret. Serve with Mojo Rojo or Mojo Verde ( see recipes I've posted). Very simple recipe for beginner cook. From Eating Well.

    Strong 4 stars for these salty crustied potatoes. Good side or tapas. Must have mojo rojo or mojo verde alongside if tapasing.

    I love this! Not quite five stars, as it's "only" some boiled potatoes, but at the same time, it's a beautiful accompaniment to any mediterranean dish (fish/meat/salad in a tomatoey/herby sauce). You'll especially appreciate this if you've been on your hols to Lanzarote and want to relive some of the memories. Me and my girlfriend have enjoyed these with some chicken and some mojo rojo. Now all that's missing is a balcony and the sunshine!Sadly not present in Manchester, England at the moment!

    this is a very good easy side dish, but you spoiled me with your potatoes w/lemon, sea salt and herbes de provence- this is a close second :)
