In the Canary Islands, potatoes are cooked using a unique method that we've adopted here. By simmering potatoes in heavily salted water until the water runs completely dry, the potatoes develop a crystallized salt crust on the outside while the inside remains soft and creamy. It's served with a tangy cilantro sauce, otherwise known as mojo verde, for dipping purposes. If you like potato chips but aren't keen on the deep-fried part, don't skip these.

I'm confused, I expected some salt. What I got was plain old fashioned boiled potatoes. No salt, none at all. Plain potatoes period. Confusing.

These were a total surprise. Delicious and amazing sauce pairing.

Has a water saturated finish to the flavor. Tried to cook it out.

I liked these potatoes, it is what it is, I just don't think they were salt crusted, nor did they have much taste to it

Nice fluffy center. Good generally, but no surprise... VERY salty. The sauce tempered the saltiness a bit. Interesting side!
5 Stars
Confit potatoes.. Yum. Used dual cook time. 350 for 10 minutes, then 300 for 15 minutes. Toned down the strong cilantro dip by mixing with equal part sour cream. Finished with a finishing salt. So good. Must try.

These are really tasty but portion size is a little small thus the 4 stars instead of 5.

Baked mine. No crust to be found, but they were salty. The highlight here was the sauce.
5 Stars
The green sauce is amazing. But the portion size was a little disappointing for the price

Probably should be 5 stars but not my style of sauce. For those who like that style... you will love it. The potatoes? AMAZING!!

These are great for snacking. I'd love an alternative dip, but the mojo verde was tasty.

Interesting idea, the smalls pieces tasted great but the big ones had a bit too much potato-taste in them. I liked the sauce too!
