Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

Potatoes dishes usually do not take the limelight as they are often served as side dishes. This is no different. I made this to share the oven space while baking a 12-inch pizza and also because I harvested too much rosemary this morning. 

It turned out to be very delicious....almost overshadowed the Grilled Salmon Pizza that came out from the same oven.

Ingredients (enough for 2 pax) :
  • 3 potatoes (do not peel)(washed and drained)(cut into quarters)
  • 1 to 2 stalks of rosemary (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp grounded black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp crispy sambal shrimps or chilli flakes (optional)(available in supermarkets)

(tsp = teaspoon; tbsp = tablespoon) 

Method :

Sprinkle salt and grounded pepper on potatoes. Add 1 tbsp olive oil.
Add finely chopped rosemary (use the leaf portions only). If you prefer the potatoes to be slightly spicy, sprinkle a little crispy sambal shrimps or chilli flakes on potatoes. Toss all ingredients evenly. Cover with aluminium foil and bake in oven (at 180 degrees celsius for 1 hour). Remove from oven every 15 minutes to give it a thorough toss to ensure even taste.
Remove from oven after 1 hour and roasted potatoes are ready to be served.
The aftertaste remained in our mouths the whole evening.
