Cajun Shoestring Fries


I am going to be heading to New Orleans for a Stag at the end of March. In between the partying I am hoping to get some good meals in and try foods that I haven't eaten before. This was a quick way to use a potato, I've had sitting around for the month or so, and use some Cajun spices to get in the Southern mood. I ended up with nearly perfect "shoestring" fries that had just enough crunch on the outside while being soft and fluffy on the inside.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large potato
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
Directions:

  1. Cut the potato into desired strips.
  2. Soak the chopped potato in cold water for around 20 mins.
  3. In a small bowl mix the seasoning together (it would be good as a rub on fish, chicken, pork or anything else).
  4. Drain the potato and dry with paper towel (make sure it is is as dry as possible, if you put something that is too wet into a fryer it pretty much explodes).
  5. Fry the potatoes at 375 degrees F for 5 mins then season immediately out of the fryer.
