Today's potato recipe is sort of a Spanish variation of home fries. The potatoes are boiled until just tender—not too mushy or falling apart—then pan-fried with spices until nice and crispy.
Most home fries recipes I've seen contain just a few basic ingredients, like salt, pepper, oil, garlic, and onions, but this one uses other ingredients that are more common to Spanish cuisine—paprika, parsley, and turmeric. OK, saffron is technically the ingredient common to Spanish cuisine, and turmeric is just an inexpensive way to cheat.
The spices in this recipe give it a little more kick than most home fries, and the parsley adds unexpected freshness. Don't worry, though—the comfort of your typical home fries isn't lost. It still comes through because of the deliciously crispy and seasoned skin on the potatoes. Enjoy!
