Authentic Canarian Potatoes

Tenerife Dining Recipes

So, you’ve sampled the delightful Canarian Potatoes in Tenerife, and you’ve decided that you’d like to try your hand at making some at home!

Luckily these delicious snacks are very simple to create yourself.

Our recipe will make enough to serve a total of 4 people.

Ingredients needed

Roughly 2 lbs of small potatoes (highly essential that you do NOT use the large potatoes)
2 tablespoons of coarse Sea Salt

Cooking instructions

Wash all the potatoes thoroughly, ensuring that they are totally clean.

Once all the potatoes are fully cleaned and scoured, put them directly into a large saucepan with enough water in to cover them fully. Sprinkle the salt into the pan.

Then switch the potatoes on to boil for roughly 20 minutes – it’s not an exact amount of time here, you’ll be able to judge yourself when they’re fully cooked. Once you’re sure they’re cooked through, simply switch the hob off and pour off all the water from the potatoes into the sink. Leave the sauscepan to cool, with potatoes still in, and you will notice the salt leaving behind a ‘crisp’ layer as the poatoes dry.

Although these delicacies can be eaten cold, they are much nicer eaten while still hot, and served with red or green ‘mojo’ sauce.
