How To Make duck fat roasted potatoes

  • 1
    Place potatoes in a large pot, fill with enough cold water so the water level is about 1-inch above the vegetables, then add coarse sea salt. Transfer to the stove on high heat, cover and bring to a boil. When it boils, remove the lid and set the timer for 5 minutes.

    Drain potatoes in a colander. Transfer to a cutting board and cut into smaller pieces – not too small otherwise they won’t hold their shape. Place them on a baking dish lined with foil and pour on warm fat. Stir to coat and season potatoes with freshly ground black pepper, sea salt and paprika. Transfer to a 400ºF preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes.
