This didn't make it to the plate. I ate it right out of the pan.As usual, I made it for one.I recommend being more patient than was and actually put them on a plate. Eating them right out of the hot oil and butter is probably silly.
Pan-fried Yams with Caraway
1/2 yam or 1 small yam
2 T butter
2 T Italian extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp whole caraway seed
fresh ground white pepper to taste
salt to taste (I used coarse ground pink Himalayan salt)
Cut yam into 1/2 inch slices. Boil for 8-9 minutes. Don't overcook them. Drain yams.
Heat EVOO and butter in pan until butter stops bubbling. Place yam slices in pan and fry for about 5 minutes.Flip yams and sprinkle with caraway seed, pepper and cayenne. Fry for an additional 5 minutes.
