Description

Best Greek lemon potatoes recipe! Crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside with yummy lemon-y flavor. All the secrets to roast the perfect Greek potatoes


Scale

Ingredients

  • 7 large potatoes (maris piper)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 150ml olive oil (3/4 cup)
  • 150ml water (3/4 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • juice of 2 lemons
  • 1 teaspoon semolina
  • salt and freshly ground pepper


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F
  2. To prepare these extra crispy Greek lemon potatoes, cut the potatoes into wedges and place them on a large metal roasting pan. Into a bowl add the remaining ingredients (including the semolina and the 150ml of water) and blend; pour the semolina-lemon mixture over the potatoes and season well with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake for 40 minutes, until a nice golden crust has formed on the potatoes; turn them out of the oven, toss them a little bit to bring them upside down, sprinkle with a pinch of oregano and put back into the oven for another 30-40 minutes. If all of the liquid has been absorbed and the pan appears to be getting dry, add 1/4-1/2 of a cup hot water into the pan or some extra lemon mixture, before they have fully browned
  4. The secret for these extra crispy Greek lemon potatoes is to sprinkle the potatoes with some semolina, as it helps to form a nice golden crust around them. Don’t be afraid of over baking them- they will become even more delicious!
