Fried Greek Potatoes

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

How to Make Fried Greek Potatoes


  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.
