Garlic Roasted Potatoes

Posted on

Garlic Roasted Potatoes, adapted from Ina Garten, are simple and delicious – you just need an hour to prep and cook.

A few notes:

  • If you use foil, make sure it’s non-stick.
  • If you’re working with baby potatoes, they might only need 30-45 minutes to cook.
  • Personally, I use only small baby red potatoes to minimize chopping, I add FAR more garlic than called for in the original recipe, and I don’t bother with the parsley.

The very easy, delicious Easy Baked Maple Glazed Arctic Char recipe has long been a staple in our weekly dinner rotation but it hit me recently that I hadn’t made it since the weather turned cool.

  • soy sauce
  • fresh ginger (I use ground ginger that I keep in my refrigerator)
  • cornstarch,

My husband was shocked.  Pleased, but shocked.

Especially since on Monday I actually cooked the fish I bought – rather than my usual mojo which is to buy the fish,

Mmm Mmm Mustard Roasted Fish

OK, so I’ll admit that adding a cream sauce to fish is not the most lo-co of plans.  But there I was, under pressure.  It’s tradition that I make a fish dish at our annual family reunion at Cape Cod (look how lo-co I’ve been: the other big family dinners are steak and lobster/ribs!) It’s a diverse crowd, and I needed a new fish dish that all would enjoy.

What inspired me was the not-great weather (clearly it wasn’t cooking lo-co as I went with a cream sauce).  As it was unusually cool, I decided to bake instead of grill the fish.
