Ingredients

  • 2 lb golden potatoes -organic
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt +more to taste
  • 3/4 tsp sweet paprika
  • 2 tsp olive oil + more as needed
  • 3 sprigs rosemary (leaves only)
  • 7 cloves garlic -whole in paper
  • 1 pinch black pepper -freshly cracked

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven with a large cast iron skillet or plate inside to 425” F for about 20 minutes.
  • Rinse and scrub the potatoes well and cut them into quarters or eights if they are on the larger side. 
  • Cover with about an inch of salted water ( should taste like sea water) and bring to a simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, drain in a colander and allow the potatoes to dry well in the steam for a few minutes. (Taste to make sure they are salty enough for you)
  • Transfer the potatoes to a large mixing bowl together with the garlic, rosemary, black pepper and the paprika. Drizzle with olive oil and gently toss to coat well all over. 
  • Very carefully open the oven and transfer the potatoes to the preheated skillet or tray in the oven in a single layer.
  • Roast for about 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Use a spatula to scoop them out carefully not to break them. Serve hot!

Notes

If you don't have a cast iron skillet or tray, just use your largest roasting pan lined with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone baking mat. However, the potatoes won't be quite as crispy as cooking them on hot cast iron. Use the same methid if making these oil-free.
