    Recipe Information

    1kg Maris Piper Potatoes

    200ml Sunflower Oil

    1 tsp Paprika

    3 cloves of Garlic

    2 sprigs of Fresh Rosemary

    Sea Salt and Black Pepper


    Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.

    Peel the potatoes and cut into large chunks.

    Parboil in salted water for 5 minutes with the whole cloves of garlic and paprika.

    Drain well in a colander, then shake them around to roughen up the edges.

    Pre-heat the oil in a metal roasting dish.

    When the oil is hot, place each potato carefully in the oil, along with the sprigs of rosemary.

    Cook for 45 minutes until golden – turning a couple of times as you cook.

    Drain off the surplus oil, discard the rosemary and the garlic.

    Season with salt and pepper and serve.
