Golden garlic potatoes

Serves 4

Restaurateur Steve Johnson, who fishes off the coast of Westport when he gets the chance, makes these to go with his catch.

2 pounds yellow fingerling potatoes, unpeeled and cut 1/2-inch thick
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1. In a large saucepan, combine the potatoes, olive oil, salt, and garlic. Add enough water to cover the potatoes.

2. Set the saucepan over high heat and bring the liquid to a boil. Lower the heat, and simmer the potatoes for 10 minutes or until they are tender.

3. With a slotted spoon, transfer the potatoes to a bowl, and sprinkle with parsley and cilantro. Adapted from Steve Johnson
