Potato wedges

This potato recipe is for potato wedges.  This baked potato recipe is served with a mango salsa and makes a great snack at any time.

Ingredients – 6 portions

  • 3 potatoes (medium size)
  • 3tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 2tsp paprika
  • Chilli powder / cayenne pepper (pinch)
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Mango salsa
  • 1 little gem lettuce

Getting everything ready

  • Pre-heat the oven to 190°C (Gas Mark 5).
  • Make the mango salsa, cover and place in the fridge until required.
  • Scrub the potatoes well and prick each one with a fork, then place them on a baking tray and put them into the oven.  Bake for around 1 hour or until the potatoes are cooked (the potatoes will give a little when pressed with your finger).  Take care when checking whether the potatoes are cooked, as I have known potatoes to explode.  Remove the potatoes from the oven and allow to cool.
  • Wash, dry and finely shred the lettuce.
  • When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut each potato into quarters or 6ths lengthways (depending on the size of the potatoes) and lay them on a baking tray.
  • Mix the olive oil with the paprika, chilli powder/cayenne pepper and sea salt.
  • Turn up the oven to around 220°C (Gas Mark 7).

Method

  1. Using a brush, brush the oil mixture over the potato wedges and place them back in the hot oven for about 10-15 minutes, turning them over once and brushing more oil over them.
  2. Neatly pile the lettuce onto a plate.
  3. Remove the potato wedges from the oven and divide them between the plates.  Serve the potato wedges hot with the mango salsa.
