Step 3While the potatoes are steaming, saute the garlic in olive oil until just tender but not browned, about 1 minute. Remove the garlic from the heat but leave it in the pan with the oil and keep warm.

Step 4When the potatoes are tender remove them to a serving platter and, using a fork, break each potato into 3 or 4 pieces. Sprinkle the potatoes with fleur de sel and cracked black pepper to taste, then drizzle with the the sauteed garlic and oil.
