  • What is a good spicy potato wedges seasoning? glasnt

    I've taken a liking to the simple potato wedge as an alternate to mash potato when preparing meat and three vege. However, I'm trying to get a recipe that consistently deliveries tasty wedges.

    My current method is:

    • Wash potatoes
    • Chop potatoes
    • place in plastic bag
    • Add a little oil and spice mix*
    • Shake
    • Bake

    * The spice mix is the part I've been having problems with.

    I was using:

    • 1 part salt
    • 2 parts pepper
    • 3 parts paprika

    But this wasn't giving consistent results.

    I've stuck with Nandos Peri-peri seasoning for a while as a safeguard, but I'd like to go back to my own spice mix.

    I'm looking for spicy Mexican flavours, but using only spices/herbs, and not salts or flavour enhancers, apart from sea salt (not garlic salt or onion salt).

    Any suggestions?

  • Add cumin, chili powder and garlic powder to your salt and pepper. You might like a bit of curry powder or turmeric too, but I don't know if you'd call that a Mexican flavor.

  • I once mistakenly used ground cayenne pepper rather than paprika when frying some shrimp, and the result was a taste explosion!

    I would recommend substituting half of the paprika for ground cayenne.

  • I recently had them with Dijon mustard as a spice, and it turned out really nice.

  • I've been advised by a friend of mine that I have to add salt to my curries if I want the spices to come out and not leave me with a bland curry. Now after being a doubter, as I never add salt to my food (for flavour reasons), I tried once or twice with various curries and after getting the amount right, it worked! I can kind of imagine the salt ions binding with some chemicals in the spice to aid it's solubility, but I'm not sure. Why is adding salt so important for curries? I've read this but it doesn't seem to say anything about spices. To clarify: When I have added salt to my food

This includes many of the various rendangs and sambals

The first time, I had put too little water, and burnt the bottom of the potatoes. The second time
