3. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
4. Transfer potatoes to a baking sheet, previously drizzled with half of the olive oil. Lightly smash potatoes with a meat hammer or bottom of a drinking glass (you want the skin to break). Season with salt, sprinkle with minced garlic, and drizzle with the remaining oil.
