Furikake French Fries
*Gluten Free notes: the Furikake that I purchased included soy sauce, which has wheat. However, you can make your own seaweed salt mixture. Purchase unseasoned seaweed (brush with GF tamari, toast for a few seconds over open flame, crush) + sesame seeds + sea salt)
- 1 bag of frozen french fries (if making own from scratch and frying instead of baking like a bad parent- see below)
- 2 tablespoons furikake seasoning
- sea salt or kosher salt
Follow the directions on the bag of your frozen french fries. Be a good parent and bake ‘em instead of frying. Bake until golden and crispy. While the french fries are still hot, season with salt and furikake seasoning.If you choose make homemade french fries, budget 1 large russet potato per person, after cutting, soak your fries in cold water at least 30 minutes, drain and pat very dry. The soak helps remove excess starch and produces a crisper fry. Heat your oil to 325F. Fry in batches for 1-3 minutes depending on thickness of fry, drain. Increase heat to 375F and re-fry to crisp for 30 seconds-1 minute. Drain and season while hot.
