I love the boiled potatoes that are cooked when boiling shrimp, crabs, or crawfish as much as I love the seafood itself. But thank goodness, with this recipe, I don't have to wait until I have fresh seafood to boil to get to enjoy these. I found this recipe on the website Real Cajun Recipes.

How to Make Cajun Boiled Potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large pot, stir spices into 5 quarts of water. If using new potatoes, wash them and put into the pan of water. If using medium potatoes, wash, cut the eyes from, and quarter them lengthwise and place in the pan. (Leave skin on)
    Boil over medium high heat until tender. (Check by inserting fork) Boil ten more minutes. When potatoes are tender turn off heat and let sit in spices for a minimum of 10 minutes before serving. Serve with real butter, not margarine. (Hint) after cooling the skin is easily removed from these potatoes and they make really good potato salad.
