Lemon and oregano make these fried potatoes special enough for a company meal. I love Greek food and the freshness that lemon brings.

Ingredients

6 large
baking potates, washed, not peeled and cut up as for large french fries

kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper and oregano to taste
1/2 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Combine the potatoes, lemon juice, salt, pepper and oregano in a bowl, mix well and allow the potatoes to marinate for an hour or so.
2
Heat the olive oil in a wok or deep skillet over high heat until it begins to smoke.
3
Add the marinated potatoes and fry them, tossing gently but often, until they begin to brown.
4
Adjust the seasonings, adding additional salt, pepper, lemon juice and oregano, as desired.
5
Cook until nicely browned and just tender. Do not let the potatoes get so soft that they fall apart.
