Papa Salada is a traditional Colombian side dish and is a typical accompaniment to our asados or grilled meats. In my opinion, the best papas saladas are found in Medellin at a chain restaurant called Kokoriko, where their specialty is roasted chicken.
Salted Potato (Papa Salada)
- 12 small red potatoes, washed and un-peeled
- 2 ½ cups water
- 2 tablespoons salt
- In a medium pot, place the potatoes and water.
- Turn the heat to medium and add the salt.
- Cover the pot and cook for about 40 minutes or until all the water has evaporated. Swirl the pot to cover all the potatoes with the salt.
