Let's go to Lanzarote or Fuerteventura, two great surf islands of Canary archipelago, where you'll find great spanish cooking

A recipy easy to achieve, perfect for Tapas time or to be served with your main course.





1kg small potatoes (papas)

Wash the potatoes without peeling.

In a saucepan cover with water flush, add 2 handfuls of sea salt and boil ridges.

Drain the water and put the fire (without water) for 2 minutes

Cover with a towel for a few minutes

Then put them in a dish : salt will crystallize on the skin of potatoes.
