Skillet Potatoes with Olives and Lemon by

Source: Gourmet, 2007



1/4 cup green olives such as picholine or arbequina
1 pound fingerling or small red potatoes, peeled if desired, then halved lengthwise
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
6 (3- by 1-inch) strips lemon zest, removed with a vegetable peeler
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 cup water
1/4 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley

Accompaniment: lemon wedges


Smash olives with flat side of a large knife, then discard pits and chop olives. Toss potatoes with olives, oil, zest, cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a 10-inch heavy skillet, then add water and bring to a boil.

Cover skillet and boil over medium heat until potatoes are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove lid and cook, stirring, until water is evaporated, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve sprinkled with parsley.
