1kg waxy potato, such as Maris Peer or Desirée
6-8 tbsp sunflower or olive oil
Serves - 4
Cut the potatoes into chunks. Bring a large pan of water to the boil, then cook the potatoes for 3 mins.
Drain, shake out onto a kitchen paper-lined tray and leave to cool.
When ready to serve, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan until you can feel a strong heat rising.
If your pan isn’t large enough, fry the potatoes in two batches – rather than crowding them.
Have kitchen paper ready to drain them on. Add the potatoes in a single layer, not too tightly packed.
Turn the heat to medium-high, so that the potatoes sizzle, but don’t stir until they start to brown underneath.
Turn them all evenly 2 or 3 times until nicely browned all over – this can take about 7 mins.
Then lift out with a fish slice or large slotted spoon to drain on more kitchen paper. Sprinkle with sea salt.
