Wrinkled Potatoes with Black Caviar

Wrinkled Potatoes with Black Caviar

The potatoes are cooked in 3/4 cup salt, which seems excessive, but they absorb very little. The salt seasons the spuds and helps create distinctively wrinkled skins.

  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 2 potatoes)


  • 3 none (8-ounce) cartons plain fat-free yogurt
  • 3/4 cup kosher salt
  • 24 none small red potatoes (about 2 1/4 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons caviar


Spoon yogurt onto several layers of heavy-duty paper towels; spread to 1/2-inch thickness. Cover with additional paper towels; let stand 5 minutes. Scrape into a bowl using a rubber spatula; cover and chill.

Place salt and potatoes in a saucepan. Cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until tender. Drain and return to pan. Cook 10 minutes over low heat, shaking pan frequently. Cool potatoes.

Cut a 1/4-inch-deep X in top of each potato, squeezing each potato to reveal pulp. Top each potato with 1 1/2 teaspoons drained yogurt and 1/4 teaspoon caviar.
