Cover the content and cook it for 20 minutes. Sprinkle the chopped parsley if you prefer. Serve this Captains Food Recipe while hot.

  3. Reduce heat. With the remaining oil in the skillet add the potatoes. Spread the potatoes evenly and cook for about 5 minutes without stirring. Add red pepper flakes, garlic, red bell pepper, and salt. Let it cook while occasionally stirring for 4 minutes. By now, the potatoes and peppers should be tender.
