spicy baked potato wedges

spicy baked potato wedges



  • 1/3  cup medium coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried garlic  (you can use minced fresh garlic, but add it before serving it and don’t add it to the jar if you’re keeping the salt for later)
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1  teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2  teaspoon dried mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1/2  teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1/2  teaspoon dried onion powder
  • A few tablespoons olive oil
  • A few tablespoons butter (melter)
  • 1 pound potatoes (scrubbed and dried, with skin)


  1. Mix all ingredients except potato wedges and olive oil in a jar. 
  2. Preheat oven to 180ºC / 350ºF.
  3. Put aluminum foil in an oven tray (it makes it easier to clean up afterwards).
  4. Cut washed and dried potatoes in half, and then each half in thirds or fourths, depending on how big you want the wedges. Put them in a bowl.
  5. Add melted butter and oil to the potatoes and mix a bit to coat the wedges.
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until they are tender and golden. 
  7. Add a few tablespoons of the spice mixture and return to the oven for 5-10 minutes, until they are crunchy and golden. 
  8. Serve immediately with more spice salt if you want to.
