Serves: 4
Difficulty: Easy


1kg Maris Piper or King Edward potatoes 
Maldon Sea Salt
100ml vegetable oil


    1. Drop the potatoes into a large pan and pour in enough water to barely cover them. Add salt, then wait for the water to boil. As soon as the water reaches a full rolling boil, lower the heat and simmer the potatoes for 10 mins. Drain and allow to dry.

    2. Meanwhile, pour the vegetable oil into a roasting tin and heat in the oven for a few minutes so it’s really hot. Roast the potatoes in the pre-heated oil for 35-40 mins until golden and crispy.
