Homemade Crispy Cajun Fries

Simple crispy fries with cajun seasoning is all you need for a nice snack or when watching TV. Depending on how fast you can cut potatoes, prep and cooking time can be done within 30 minutes.

Crispy cajun fries. Make fries crispy by frying them twice. Seasoning can be anything you prefer. These delicious fries are served with cajun seasoning from McCormick.

Frying your potatoes twice is the secret to crispy french fries. This seems to be the simplest method. Other ways usually include coating the potatoes with a sugar glaze, but I don't think it's necessary.
Homemade Crispy Cajun Fries

  • 2 large russet potatoes
  • Cajun seasoning (McCormick)

I followed the instructions from the video below. But it's really simple, first, cut up potatoes into sticks. Make them as thick or thin as you prefer. Also, peel the potato if you feel like it.

As you're slicing the potatoes, set the cut pieces in a bowl filled with ice water until your're finish. This prevents the potatoes from browning. Drain the water and wash your potatoes one more time to rinse off remaining starch.

Dry the potato sticks using paper towels.

Using a pot with at least 3 inches of vegetable oil, fry the potatoes twice. First time at 325 deg F. Cook until brownish. Remove and drain excess oil using paper towels.

For the second frying, heat up oil to 375 deg F. This is the part when the fries become crispy. And it will happen real quick. Be sure to remove the fries as soon as they turn golden brown. Drain on plate covered with paper towels.

Season accordingly. We typically use cajun seasoning since my brother loves them that way, but you can use just salt and pepper, as well.

Serve and enjoy.
