Sea Salt and Vinegar Smashed Potatoes

image_pdf

I’m trying to come up with ways to enjoy potatoes without all the butter and cream. I also love the flavors of sea salt and vinegar together. And then I thought, why not? We do it to french fries, why not just some smashed potatoes? And so I did! Not Mashed, but Smashed!

Here’s How to Do it:

First, cook the potatoes whole in boiling water until they are fork tender. Turn off the heat and let them cool in the water.

Once they are cooled enough to handle, heat the oil in a heavy skillet. 

Place each potato in the skillet, one at a time. Using the flat bottom of a glass or cup,

push down until the potatoes are “smashed”.

Fry them up until just lightly golden brown, then flip and do the other sides.

Sprinkle the salt and vinegar powder evenly over all the potatoes. 

Serve hot!
