Fried Potatoes

  • Servings: 6


  • Coarse salt
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 3 pounds Yukon gold potatoes


  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add salt and potatoes, and blanch for 5 minutes. Remove potatoes, and drain well. Dry potatoes in a clean kitchen towel; set aside.

  2. Heat 1/2 inch oil in a large straight-sided skillet until very hot. Carefully add potatoes, and fry, stirring occasionally, until fork-tender and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer potatoes to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain. Season with salt, and serve immediately. The potatoes may be kept warm in a 200 degrees oven for up to 30 minutes.
