Cajun Spice Potato Wedges

For this recipe I peeled 4 potatoes and cut into wedges.

You don't have to peel the potatoes if you would prefer to keep the skin on, some people might say it tastes better.

I wasn't sure how to cut the perfect wedges, so I searched on google and found a great little video from Gordon Ramsey to show me how. If you search for it on google it's the top result.

Once the wedges are cut you need to put them in a large pan of seasoned boiling water for 10 minutes. It's advisable to keep an eye on the wedges while they boil, as they literally need cooking until you can put a knife through. Cook for too long and you'll end up with mash potato!

Meanwhile spray a baking tray with fry light to avoid sticking.

Once boiled drain and shake the colander to fluff up the edges of your wedges.

Place in an even layer in tray and sprinkle with Cajun spice to taste (3-4 teaspoons was perfect for me). Sprinkle over a little garlic powder and shake up the tray to make sure the wedges are evenly covered. Spray with fry light again and place in a pre heated oven for 20-30 minutes, checking regularly to ensure they are cooked through.

Sorry times are a little sketchy, but it all depends on the size of your wedges.

Below are two photos of the wedges.
