Today, is that day. And I, have no better way to celebrate it with you all, than to share the recipe for this "wrinkle potatoes with green mojo." For those of you that never tasted these potatoes, I recommend you to try and make them, because the flavor that you get in your mouth is worth it. And, if by any chance you go to the Islands, do not skip this dish, taste it, and if you have time tell me all about it.
- 2 pounds of red potatoes (1 kilo)
- 3 cups of kosher Salt, or Coarse Sea Salt
After the potatoes are done, drain all the water from the saucepan and, once more put the pan in the heat to dry up the potatoes. Move them constantly to prevent from burning. The potatoes are ready when they start to show a white crust all around. This is the salt that covers them when all the water dries up.
While the potatoes cook, it is time to make the "mojo verde." This sauce is mainly made out of cilantro, herein the green color.
- 1 cup of finely chopped cilantro
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/3 cup of olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon of coarse sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
and mix it well until it looks like a paste. Pour in the cumin, the salt and pepper and give it a stir. Finally, add the olive oil, stir, and then the vinegar. Mix all well and pour it onto a bowl.
This is how it should look if you have them together. Enjoy it and as Canarians say: Que le aproveche! Which translated means Bon appetit!
