These fingerling potatoes tossed with parsley and butter are a quick and delicious side dish. These potatoes goes great with grilled seafood or meat. You can also prepare this recipe using a mix of baby potatoes or any root vegetable (sweet potatoes, yuca, parsnips, etc). The parsley can be substituted with any other fresh herbs: basil, thyme, cilantro, tarragon, etc. Sometimes I also like to add some lime or lemon juice to turn it into a simple potato salad.
