How To Make Mojo Potatoes

Ingredients :

  • 4 large potatoes (russet or Yukon Gold)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)

Préparations :

Prepare the Potatoes: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Wash and scrub the potatoes thoroughly, then cut them into wedges or slices, depending on your preference. For extra crispiness, leave the skin on.

Make the Mojo Sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together the minced garlic, olive oil, lime juice, orange juice, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper until well combined. This flavorful Mojo sauce will be the secret ingredient that elevates your potatoes to the next level.

Marinate the Potatoes: Place the potato wedges in a large mixing bowl and pour the Mojo sauce over them, ensuring that each wedge is thoroughly coated. Allow the potatoes to marinate for at least 15 minutes to soak up all the delicious flavors.

Bake to Perfection: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy cleanup. Arrange the marinated potato wedges in a single layer on the baking sheet, making sure they are not overcrowded. This allows the potatoes to crisp up evenly in the oven.

Achieve Crispy Perfection: Slide the marinated potato wedges into the preheated oven, where they’ll undergo a magical transformation over the next 25-30 minutes. Watch as they dance in the heat, gradually morphing into golden-brown wonders with a satisfying crunch on the outside, while remaining delightfully tender within.

Serve and Enjoy: Once the potatoes are cooked to perfection, remove them from the oven and transfer them to a serving platter. Sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro for a burst of color and flavor. Serve hot and enjoy the irresistible combination of crispy potatoes and tangy Mojo sauce!
