Recipe

This peppery dish was developed by the French settlers of Louisiana.

Yield: Makes 6 servings
Prep time: 10 Mins
Cooking time: 35–45 Mins

Ingredients

  • 4 potatoes, unpeeled
  • 3 red onions, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 lemon, cut into 6 wedges
  • 12 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Prepare ahead: The potatoes can be prepared through step 2 several hours before roasting.

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Cut the potatoes into thick wedges. Parcook in a large pan of salted boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain well. Combine the potatoes, onions, lemon, garlic, and bay leaves in a large roasting pan.

2. Whisk together the oil, lemon juice, tomato paste, paprika, oregano, thyme, cayenne, and cumin, pour over the potatoes, and toss. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Roast for 30–40 minutes, turning frequently with a metal spatula, until the potatoes are tender and have absorbed the liquid. Serve hot.
