Putting a wrinkle in the way you cook potatoes
Well, how about wrinkly?
In the Spanish Canary Islands they are called papas arrugadas, or wrinkly potatoes. Cooking in heavily salted water wrinkles the skins and leaves them with a light crusting of salt. The result is a concentrated potato flavor enlivened by a gentle seasoning that seems to go all the way through. They are delicious served with baked or grilled fish and Canary Island mojo sauces.
Mendel also shows you how to put it together in a meal with her recipes for samcocho -- baked fish with mint -- served alongside wrinkly potatoes and red-and-green sauces to accompany, mojo verde and mojo colorado.
