Rosemary Roasted Potato Salad


I don't eat potatoes very often since I'm more a "rice" person. The only time potatoes get sneaked into my food is when I have chicken curry. Sometimes...just sometimes, potatoes can be alluring, especially when it is "Western menu" for dinner. Baked/roasted fish with vegetables and roasted warm potato salad. This meal is complete.



Rosemary Roasted Potato Salad
Ingredients: potatoes, boiled (70-80% cooked), drained, cubed; salt and freshly ground black pepper, dried rosemary herbs, butter, thinly sliced shallots

Directions:
1. Butter the pan and fry the shallots till slightly caramelized
2. Rub some butter on baking foil, place the cubed potatoes on the foil, seasoned with salt and black pepper and rosemary. Place the caramelized shallots on top of potatoes. Mix thoroughly to ensure the potatoes are well-seasoned/"coated"
3. Wrap the potatoes and roast them in a pre-heated oven (to finish cooking) at ~180degC for about ~10mins



Enjoy.

I'm not a potato person either but my hubby and kids love potatoes. I would say I only like baked potato with sour cream and butter. They would love this dish.

I'm like you - I prefer rice over potatoes. But once in awhile, they are mighty tasty, when done right! Sounds like a bit of rosemary will do just that!

I nearly make the same roseamry potato salad but leave my potatoes for a longer time in the oven & I don't use baking foil. I use a fruity Evoo & fresh rosemary!

Looks very tasty!! What's not to love???

BK said...

I would love to have that anytime over rice. Although an Asian, where rice is the staple food, I love noodle more than rice. My favourite would be minced meat noodle or 'Bak Chor Mee.' :)

Hi! New to your blog... I just wanted to say that I love the way you post your recipes - without exact measurements. I've been cooking for a while now, but i'm still new in the sense that I have a hard time making something without looking up a recipe first and following it pretty much exactly. I'm going to add your blog to my google reader to try to get out of that habit. thanks again.
