Garlic Potato Wedges with Jalapeno Aioli

IMG_4324

This past summer we had family from out of town visiting so we took them to Virginia City (a true Wild West town) we ate at one of the casinos. My hopes weren’t too high for this place, but I walked away pretty impressed with what we had! Garlic Steak fries with jalapeno aioli….can I say Y-U-M! My little brother loves jalapenos so I told he and his girlfriend I’d come up with a jalapeno aioli recipe. It didn’t take me long to find an addicting concoction of jalapeno, lime, and mayonnaise! I used it with my Spicy Lime Marinated Chicken and it rocked that too…

4 russet potatoes
1 c. flour
1T garlic salt
2T onion powder
1T kosher salt
1t pepper
1T butter
1 or 2 cloves finely chopped garlic
grated parmesan
parsley, finely chopped

Toss flour, garlic powder, onion powder, S & P in a paper or plastic bag.

Wash and scrub potatoes. Cut into wedges 8-10 wedges each potato,, depending on how thick you like them.

Place the wedges in the flour mixture, close bag and shake to coat all wedges.  Place wedges on a baking sheet. Spray with canola or olive oil.

In 450 oven, cook the wedges for 25 minutes, turning once through cooking.

While the wedges are cooking melt 1T butter in a sauce pan. finely chop one to two cloves of garlic. Sauté garlic for 1 min, before it turns brown, but just enough to infuse the butter with garlic flavor.

Once wedges are done cooking, drizzle with garlic and butter, sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese. Top with some chopped fresh parsley.
