Patricia’s Mouth Watering Crisp, Crunchy “Roast” Potatoes

On your phone? Scroll down. There are 3 photos. Thanks.

Here is how my wife made crisp, crunchy “roast” potatoes for our 2021 New Year’s Day roast lamb lunch.

First she peeled some potatoes, cut them in half and par boiled them in salt water (Don’t let them get too soft). Next she poured the potatoes into a colander and let them stand for a few minutes. Then, she lightly scuffed the potatoes with a fork so that they were not too smooth and sprinkled coarse sea salt over the potatoes. (Scuffing the potatoes makes them come out really crisp and crunchy!). Finally, she fried the potatoes in a pan. She used Canola oil. Quite deep.

Look at the results. No need to say more!
