Crispy Coated Cajun Fries

Recipe by  

"Potatoes are coated in a spicy mixture of corn flour and Cajun seasoning then deep fried until crispy. Very simple and really crunchy. I like mine extra spicy so I soak my cut potatoes in hot sauce for a few seconds before shaking them in the dry batter."

  1. Place cut potatoes into a large bowl of cold water. Soak for 10 minutes. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the corn flour, corn meal, and Cajun seasoning. Shake the bag to blend. Drain the potatoes, but leave them wet. Place the fries in the plastic bag with the seasoning, and shake to coat.
  2. Heat the oil in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Cook fries in hot oil for 7 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the fryer to paper towels to drain. Season with a small amount of salt.

Excellent recipe - I tried to cut down on the oil and dipped pototoes in oil instead, coated them and roasted in oven. Turned out good also

This was okay. I didn't care for the cornmeal on the fries.

I couldn't find corn flour so I used all corn meal, they were fine.

I was specifically looking for a spicy recipe, and I came across this one and had to try it. I followed the recipe exactly, but also used a couple of tablespoons of GROUND FRESH CHILI PASTE (in a jar in the asian food section)to coat the potatoes before putting them in the corn flour mixture. Then I deep fried them in PEANUT OIL until browned. My only problem was I couldn't get them really crispy. They were brown but not crispy. Not sure what the problem was. Anyway, I still loved this recipe and can't wait to make it for the family too.
