DIRECTIONS

STEP 1

Wash and clean the potatoes. Optionally, they can be peeled. Slice into wedge shapes and add them to a large pot of cool water. Place the pot over medium-high heat. Once the water is boiling, cook for 8-10 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft but not falling apart.

STEP 2

While the potatoes are boiling, combine the tapioca starch, coconut flour, garlic powder, paprika, sea salt, and black pepper in a wide, shallow dish. Whisk well to combine.

STEP 3

Add the tallow to a wide, heavy-bottomed skillet (12-14” width is ideal) and place over medium heat. Heat the oil until the surface shimmers or measures 350F on a thermometer.

STEP 4

Carefully remove the potatoes from the water with a slotted spoon and place them on a cooling rack to allow steam to escape for 2-3 minutes. Move them into the flour mixture to coat lightly on all sides.

STEP 5

Working in batches, add the dusted potato wedges into the hot fry oil. Be careful not to crowd the pan or the oil temperature can drop too much. Fry for 5-10 minutes, or until all sides are lightly golden brown. 

STEP 6

Remove the wedges from the fry oil to a cooling rack set over paper towels. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and allow them to cool and crisp up for 10 minutes before serving.

STEP 7

Just before serving, top with thinly sliced red onion, buffalo sauce, crumbled feta cheese, and chopped cilantro, or other toppings as desired.
