Prep time:

Serves: 6
  • 6 large Idaho potatoes, washed and scrubbed well
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fine grain sea salt, or to taste
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons high quality lemon pepper (I like Mrs. Dash's no preservative blend) - or to taste
  • zest from 3 lemons
  • a few squeezes of fresh lemon juice, optional
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Using a mandoline, slice potatoes, with the skin, into french fries. Place sliced potatoes into a large bowl of ice water while the oven preheats, or for at least 20 minutes. Drain the water and thoroughly pat the potatoes dry. In a large bowl, toss fries with olive oil, salt, and lemon pepper. Spread evenly on two large nonstick baking sheets.
  3. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, rotating pans halfway through and turning fries occasionally. Fries will be golden and crispy when done. Remove from oven and toss with lemon zest and juice, if desired. Eat them right away!
