the crunchy and tasty side dish

Strongly flavored and crunchy, garlic potatoes are a tasty side dish, both for meat and fish dishes.

The preparation of potatoes with garlic is inspired by a recipe belonging to the French tradition, known as “Pommes de terre à l’ail”. It is a really tasty and delicious side dish, whose two main ingredients are the ones that give the whole recipe its name: potatoes and garlic. The latter should not be deprived of the peel, but should be used whole. In this way, garlic succeeds to give a very bold flavour to the whole plate. Potatoes go fried in a mixture of oil and butter to then become crunchy. Prepared in this way, they are suitable for both meat and fish dishes.
