Air Fryer Potato Wedges

Slice the Potatoes – Irrespective of the potatoes (refer to essential tips for more info on varieties) you pick make sure you wash them thoroughly and slice them into even wedges as I have explained in the paragraph How to cut Potato Wedges. Do not peel the skin.

Soak the potatoes and preheat air fryer simultaneously – As explained in the essential tips, soaking and important so try to soak the sliced wedges into warm water for atleast a minimum of 10 mins if not more. Skipping this step might result in not-so-crispy wedges. You can also start preheating your air fryer at this point at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Make the spice blend or seasoning – While the potatoes are soaking, quickly keep your seasoning ready. You will mix the oil, garlic salt (or garlic powder and salt separately), smoked paprika, rosemany, oregano and parsley. If you don’t have any herb or spice readily available you can use whatever ingredients you have. Mix it all together and keep is ready.

Spread them evenly – Spread the wedges evenly in the air fryer basket, keeping the skin of the wedge at the bottom if you can.

After minutes minutes check the air fryer to see if you are happy with the crispiness, if you want the wedges a little more crispier you can air fry them for another 5 mins at the same temperature. You don’t need to flip or turn them mid way through.

Serve them hot or else like any other fries of wedges they will start becoming soft if not immediately consumed.
