Cajun Spiced Roasted Potatoes in two steps:
Step one, make the spice mix in a mortar and pestle, so it should be quite fine:
- 2 tablespoons paprika
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons onion powder
- 2 teaspoons ground red pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
Step two: Potatoes and garlic
Chops lots of potatoes quite small
Chop some garlic quite small
Put some tin foil in a baking pan or on a cookie sheet
Roll the potatoes and garlic in the spice mix.
Put on the pan/sheet.
(Note: Most recipes say to peel. I actually prefer unpeeled; much more flavour, crispier and tasty. YMMV)
Preheat to about 450. Cook until brown and crispy. (30-40 minutes, but check after as little as twenty.)
I halved the amount of spice mix for what I made and it was fine - and still had extra. Just make sure each potato piece gets a little reddish/brownish looking, rather than using all of it. Obviously can add more spice mix when cooked if it's not sufficiently spicy for your taste, but be careful because this is a slow burn rather than an upfront one.
