Boiled Creamer Potatoes with Garlic and Dill

Radish’s note: Few things in my opinion are as simple, elegant and festive as simple boiled potatoes cooked in salty water with garlic and tossed with fresh dill and sea salt. It was also the very perfect accompaniment to our New Year’s steak. In my family, no celebration has ever passed without this dish gracing our table.

2 lbs creamer potatoes
2 cloves garlic
2 tsp salt
1 cup chopped dill
flaky sea salt to taste
2 tsp unsalted butter

Place the potatoes in a pot and cover with enough water, so that it sits 3-4 inches above the potatoes. Add the garlic and the salt. Cook until potatoes are soft when pierced with a knife.

Drain the water and press the garlic into a paste and add back to the potatoes. Toss with dill, add the butter and season with flaky sea salt to taste.
