Scrub the potatoes well. Cut into 1 cm thick slices with the skins on.
Put the potato slices in a pan with enough water to cover and start cooking.
Boil until a bamboo skewer goes through a slice easily.
Drain off the water and return the potato slices to the pan. Shake over heat until all the water in the pan is evaporated and the slices are covered with a fine powder.
Turn off the heat, add the butter and soy sauce, mix and it's done.
Transfer to serving plates and sprinkle with some parsley if you have it.
Story Behind this Recipe
New potatoes have a light flavor, so I thought they might go well with butter and soy sauce and I created this recipe. My potato loving daughter loves these.
Be sure to dry out the boiled potatoes in the pan until they're covered with a fine coating of potato flour before adding the butter and soy sauce. By evaporating any excess water, the flavors will blend better. The skins of new potatoes are delicious too, so wash them well and eat them whole. This recipe is delicious with regular potatoes too!
