New potatoes have a moist, almost nutty-tasting flesh. They are better in salads than old potatoes. They have a rich, buttery flavor that doesn`t need a lot of fat to bring out the flavor. They only need a touch of butter and salt to make a memorable side dish.
What you'll need
- 12 small new potatoes
- 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (plus 1 teaspoon)
- 1 large clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 pinch freshly black pepper
- Step 1
Peel off a 1/2-inch strip of skin around the center of each potato. Place the potatoes in a steamer set over simmering water. Cover and steam until tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and reserve.
- Step 2
Heat the oil and garlic in a nonstick skillet large enough to hold the potatoes in one layer. Cook over medium heat until the garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the potatoes and roll them in the oil mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
