How to Make Coriander Potatoes (Batatas Corn Coentro)
- 1Cook the potatoes in enough water to cover in a large covered saucepan over moderate heat until fork-tender-35 to 40 minutes; drain well, cool until easy to handle, then slip off the skins.
- 2Warm the olive oil and butter in a large heavy skillet over low heat. Add the peeled potatoes and turn in the oil mixture 1 to 2 minutes until the potatoes begin to color; sprinkle the coriander over all and turn the potatoes in the coriander 2 to 3 minutes until nicely coated.
- 3Sprinkle with salt, taste, and add a little more if needed, then sprinkle with pepper and serve.
