OK, this picture disappoints me because these just sorta look brown and dried out, but they weren't really.
They were little Yukon Gold potatoes, roasted 'till golden with olive oil and big sprigs of rosemary from my backyard. Crisp on the outside, soft on the inside - heavenly!
But the main reason these are special? They were the perfect place to try out the new Alder Smoked Sea Salt I got for Christmas. Oh my gosh, just a few flakes added an undertone of woody alder-smoke, almost as if I'd roasted these on the campfire!
Sorry, no precise recipe, I just wanted to share, since they were so insanely, addictively good!! If you ever get a chance to try Smoked Salt, ...WOW! It's good stuff!
And even if you don't have it, go make some roasted potatoes anyway. They're good on their own too!
So, any other ideas on how I could use the Smoked Salt? It's so freakin' good I just want to lick the bottle. Which wouldn't be a great idea, being that it's salt and all...
The recipe pamphlet included many nice recipes for fish, BBQ, eggs, hamburgers... Hmmm, I think I can get more creative than that!
