There are really NO WORDS for how awesome these fries are. I’ve discovered my new favorite way to make French fries and that’s with my handy-dandy spiralizer! It cuts the perfect (and consistent) potatoes for even frying, and literally it took like five minutes to prep.
I used a combo of two red potatoes and a sweet potato… really only because that’s what I had in the kitchen… no rhyme or reason, but loved the flavor and slight color variation in the final product. Also, I used the double fry technique to get them perfectly crispy… it works! Fry them once with your oil at 300° F, then a second time at 400° F until they’re all nice and crisp.
Fix Hot Sauce was nice enough to send me a bottle of their super-tasty Sriracha hot sauce, and I used it to make an aioli to drizzle over the hot fries (after melting some shaved Parm on top)! Top with chopped chives to give a nice green garnish and enjoy as an indulgent side dish or, in my case, a small dinner!
- Smash garlic cloves with a little bit of kosher salt in a mortar and pestle.
- Heat olive oil over medium heat in a small saucepan. Add garlic and shallot and cook 10-15 minutes until nice and fragrant. Strain olive oil into a bowl through a strainer.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together egg yolk and sriracha. Slowly add olive oil a tablespoon at a time and whisk continuously so it emulsifies. Season with salt and pepper. Add to a squeeze bottle if you want.
- Run potatoes through a spiralizer on the thinner noodle setting. Soak in a large bowl with cold water for at least 5 minutes. Rinse and repeat. After soaking, transfer to a kitchen towel and dry off as well as you can.
- Heat a large pot of canola or vegetable oil to 300 degrees F.
- When heated, fry “fries” halfway through in 300 degrees oil, for about 5-7 minutes, until they’re starting to change to a darker color. (They’ll be a little ‘soggy’). Move to paper towels to dry, and do the same with the rest of the fries.
- Preheat oven broiler. Heat oil to 400 degrees F and, when heated, add batches of the half-cooked fries to cook until brown (about 2-4 minutes.) When crisp, move to paper towels and season with salt. Finish frying the rest of the fries.
- Transfer fries to serving plate and cover in Parmesan cheese. Move to top shelf of oven to melt cheese. Drizzle with Sriracha aioli, and top with chives.
