Ingredients

  • 1 large russet potato washed
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon parsley
  • peanut oil for frying

Instructions

  • Using a mandoline, slice the potato into thin strips using the julienne blade.
  • Immediately place the slices in ice cold water and let soak for about 5-7 minutes to remove the excess starch.
  • Remove the potatoes from the water and place on a baking sheet lined with paper towels.
  • Pat the potatoes dry. You can also place them in a salad spinner if desired. (Potatoes MUST be super dry before proceeding.
  • Heat oil in a deep pot to 350 F.
  • Add a few potatoes to the pot a little bit at a time, waiting for the oil to settle down before adding in more (the pot will overflow if you just dump a whole batch in at once).
  • Cook the potatoes in batches until golden, stirring to separate them.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Mix together the seasonings and immediately sprinkle the hot potatoes with the seasoning, tossing to coat.
  • Serve immediately. (They are also good the next day.)
  • Store in airtight container if there are any left over!
