This is a little different….everyone will want to know just what you did….just smile….and keep them guessing!
- pinch of real saffron threads (about 14-15)
- 1 1/4 cups of water
- 6 potatoes
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper
Crumble the threads into the water. Peel the potatoes and cut into 1/4 inch slices. Rinse really well with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
Heat the butter in a large skillet and when the foam subsides, place the potato slices in and cook for 2 minutes each side, turning carefully. Add the saffron infused water and pour over the potatoes with the salt and pepper and briskly simmer uncovered for about 6 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for a further 15-17 minutes until tender and the water has evaporated.
Serve with lamb or beef, vegetable and salad. Wow! You have exotic tasting potatoes and only YOU know the secret.
