Perfect Fingerling Potatoes
35 mins (prep 5, cooking 30)
9 ingredients
6-8 servings
This recipe is from Alton Brown's Eat This Rock! You cook the potatoes in heavily salted water and the salt crystallizes on the outside of the potatoes. It seems like a lot of salt but it works. The reviews rave over it! I have slightly adapted it. They are even good cold!
