Cajun Potatoes - Simple Louisiana Cooking, but great!
Hubby and I ate out one night at a local
restaurant and ordered the
Cajun Potatoes. We
enjoyed them so much that I
asked the waitress how they were prepared and this is my version of
this dish. Itís quick
and easy and makes a great side dish to just about anything.
We make it often.
5 or 6 medium red potatoes
1 teaspoon liquid crab boil
1/4 tsp. Salt
Black pepper (optional)
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
Scrub the potatoes well with a vegetable
brush under running water.
With the peelings on, cut into about 1 and Ĺ inch cubes. Place
the cubes in a 3 quart pot and add enough water to cover the
potatoes. Add salt and crab boil, stir to disperse,
and boil the potatoes until done (fork tender), about 20
minutes. Drain quick
(to retain a tiny bit of the liquid) and return them to the pot off
the heat. Add the parsley, margarine and optional black pepper.
Gently stir or toss until the margarine is melted.
These potatoes should retain their shape.
This is a quick and easy recipe and makes a
good side dish to any type of meat, poultry or seafood.
