Greek lemon potatoes are a great new way to enjoy crispy potatoes. They’re not fried but they are crunchy and they have way more flavor than regular fried or roasted potatoes: lemon, garlic and herbs. You have to try them!
Watch How To Make It:
Here is the written recipe, with the ingredients and step by step instructions:
Greek Lemon Potatoes
- We start by washing and peeling the potatoes
- Next we cut the potatoes into large wedges
- In a boiling pot at medium heat we add 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of vinegar
- Next we add in the potatoes and boil them for 10 minutes
- While the potatoes are cooking, in a large bowl we add the juice of the lemons, 5 ounces (or 150ml) of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of salt, black pepper, the oregano, the crushed garlic and mix everything together for 30 seconds
- After the potatoes have boiled for 10 minutes, drain the water and add the potatoes into the large bowl. Mix the potatoes and the sauce until they are well covered. Let them rest like this for 1-2 minutes so that they absorb the sauce
- Now add them on an oven tray, covered with a baking sheet (or not), making sure to have space between the potatoes so that they roast better
- Sprinkle half of the remaining sauce over the potatoes and let them cook in the oven for 30 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit (or 200 degrees Celsius)
- After that, cover them with the rest of the sauce and toss them around. Put them again in the oven for another 30 minutes, or until they get crispy and golden brown. Take them out and serve
