Method of Preparation

Step 1: Firstly, cut 1kg potatoes into chunks. Boil water in a large pan and allow to boil, then add in your potatoes and cook the potatoes for about 3 minutes.

Step 2: Then, drain out the water, shake out onto a kitchen paper-lined tray and leave to cool.

Step 3: When ready to serve, heat up 8 teaspoon sunflower oil or olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan until you can feel a strong heat rising.

Step 4: You can fry your potatoes in two batches if your pan isn’t big enough. Get your kitchen paper ready to drain them on. Don’t add the potatoes to be tightly packed but add them in a single layer.

Step 5: Reduce your heat to medium-high, so that the potatoes sizzle, but don’t stir until they start to brown underneath.

Step 6: Turn them evenly for about 2 to 3 times until nicely browned all over. It can be done within 7 minutes.

Step 7: Lift out with a fish slice or large slotted spoon to drain on more kitchen paper. Then sprinkle with seas salt and sprinkle rosemary and serve.

Recipe Tips

  • Allow to fully steam dry: When you add the potatoes in the pan they will immediately start to fry, rather than steam. Steaming it will result in mushy potatoes.
  • Use a good heavy pan and cook in one layer: Cook in one layer because each side of the potato really need to be in contact with the pan so it fries in the oil and get crispy.
  • Gently par-boiling: Don’t par-boil too much in other not to let them fall to pieces.

Served with

  • A good steak & kidney pie
  • Sizzling steak with shallots marinade
