Pan-fried Yams with Carraway

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
pinch cayenne
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.
