Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place your peeled potatoes into a medium sized bowl, cover it with cold water and soak in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes drain and remove all excess water as well as patting the potatoes dry.
  • Season the potatoes thoroughly, also add the olive oil and mix with your hands until your French Fries are well coated.
  • Place the French Fries in the Air Fryer and cook for 10 minutes at 160c/320f. Give it a shake and cook for a further 5 minutes at 200c/400f in order for them to become crispy.
  • Serve.

Notes

A portion of Five Guys Cajun French Fries is exactly 568g and 1300 calories. We also cooked 568g worth of potatoes for an even match.
I find that you get the best flavouring from your Cajun rub if you include Cajun, Mexican, mixed spice and coriander.
Sometimes I also add spiced potato rub too. Though a lot of it is down to personal preference. At Five Guys they season and shake last after cooking their fries.
With our Air Fryer version we season before cooking. This adds the crunchy flavour and also because deep frying is some what different to air frying.
