We recently had an amazing and delicious Lobster Feast up at the Boy's family cottage. Lobster is one of my all time favorite things, just steamed with some drawn butter and I am happy. Most people need a bit more so we also did some grilled corn on the cob and an old favorite in my house growing up salt potatoes. These potatoes are so easy and go perfectly with any of your lobster, crab or any other shellfish dinners you'll be enjoying this summer.
4 lbs washed new potatoes (should all be about the same size)
1 1/2 cups kosher salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter
fresh chives - roughly chopped
1. Fill a large pot halfway with cold water. Add the salt to the water and stir until much of the salt dissolves.
2. Add in the washed potatoes. Turn stove to medium high, bring water to a boil and cook potatoes at a rolling boil for 15 minutes or until tender.
3. While potatoes boil melt butter over low heat, until completely melted.
4. Once potatoes are tender drain in a colander. Return to warm pot and toss with butter and chives.
This is my favorite type of dish, one with few steps and ingredients and lots of flavor, of course alot of the flavor is attributed to have super fresh potatoes. There isn't much to say about these, they are great, everyone loved them and the boy has a potato-eating family. Make them this summer and let me know how they turn out. Enjoy!
