Recipe: Cajun Fries

[ 0 ] June 15, 2009 |

2 lb. Yukon Gold potatoes

1 cup corn flour

2 tbsp. cornmeal

2 tbsp. Cajun seasoning

1 qt. frying oil (*Canola or Vegetable suggested)

Salt (to taste)

Pepper (to taste)

Cut the potatoes into french fries and place in bowl of cold water for 12 minutes. Combine the corn flour, cornmeal and Cajun seasoning and blend well. Drain the potatoes, leaving them wet and coat with the Cajun mixture. Heat up deep fryer to 375 degrees F and add fries to oil cooking for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the deep fryer and drain on paper towels over a plate. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and about a tsp. more of Cajun seasoning. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: Cajun fries are great with creamy based dipping sauces. Try experimenting with a remoulade recipe you have on hand or create your own Cajun compliment.
