Curly Oven French Fries with Seasoned Salt


The trick to perfectly cooked oven fries: blanch the potatoes first, dry them well, then roast them just until barely golden. For even cooking, cut the longest pieces of potatoes into shorter curls so they lie flat.

  • 4Servings



  • 11/4 lb. large Yukon gold potatoes, unpeeled
  • 3 Tbs. vegetable oil

Seasoned Salt

  • 11/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. chile powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. powdered garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika


1 | To make Fries: Preheat oven to 425°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. 2 | Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. 3 | Cut potatoes into curls with large-toothed blade on spiral slicer. Cut longest curls into shorter lengths. Discard very thin or half-moon-shaped pieces. 4 | Cook potato curls in boiling water3 minutes. Drain, and transfer to clean kitchen towel to dry. 5 | To make Seasoned Salt: Combine all ingredients in small bowl, and set aside. 6 | When potatoes are cool, arrange on prepared baking sheets, and season with 1 Tbs. Seasoned Salt. Drizzle with oil, and toss to coat. Bake 16 to 18 minutes, or until fries are lightly golden, rotating baking sheets to opposite racks halfway through cooking. Serve immediately, with Maple Mustard Dipping Sauce, if desired.
