  • Pat potato slices dry when ready to fry.
  • Fill a wok or pot with enough oil to cover your potatoes and heat. (Skip to bottom of instructions if baking or using an air fryer.)
  • Test your oil with a scrap piece of potato on a skewer to see if it’s hot enough.  The oil is the right temperature if you get lots of bubbling when you put the potato in.
  • Put your potato skewers into the hot oil and make sure it’s submerged.
  • Fry until golden brown for about 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
