2poundsmedium to large size red potatoes
season salt to taste
kosher salt to taste
peanut oil for frying or your preferred frying oil
Preheat deep fryer or oil to 320°F
Cut potatoes into wedges and place into cold water until ready to fry. Drain potatoes and dry thoroughly with a clean kitchen towel. Fry for 10 minutes. Drain on a wire rack over a sheet tray to let excess oil drip off.
Turn frying oil up to 375 °F. Fry potatoes again for 2-3 minutes until crispy. Drain on a wired rack.
Generously season with season salt and kosher salt to taste immediately after removing potatoes from the oil. Toss to coat in the seasoning.
You can cut the wedges any size that you like, just make sure while cooking that they are fully cooked through.
Make sure you place in cold water before frying, this helps remove the starch from the potatoes.
You do not need a deep fryer to make these wedges, see my notes above.
If you don't have peanut oil you can fry in regular vegetable or canola oil as well.
