1 ½ cups Idaho Russet Potatoes
1 tsp Kosher Salt
1/4 cup (2 fl oz) Parmesan Lime Aioli (see recipe below)
2 Tbsps. (1 oz) Parmesan cheese, grated
1 Tbsps. (½ oz) Black Truffle Oil
1 tsp Truffled Sea Salt
Parmesan Lime Aioli
2 cups Mayonnaise
1 fl oz Lime Juice
½ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
¼ tsp chopped fresh Thyme
½ tbsp chopped fresh Garlic
Fry Prep Instructions
To wash: Fill large bowl ½ way with cold water. Slice potatoes into 1/4 – 3/8 inch strips. Place cut potatoes directly into cold water. Agitate potatoes to remove dirt and excess starch. Put aside. To make a salt water bath, fill a second large bowl 1/4 way with warm water, add Kosher Salt, stir to dissolve. Add ¼ way with cold water. Transfer potatoes from first bowl to salted water bath. Potatoes can be stored in the refrigerator until you are ready to blanch.
To blanch: Heat fry oil in fryer to 300 degrees. Shake excess water from potatoes and place in fry basket in batches. Drop into oil and allow to cook for 2 minutes and 15 seconds. Remove from oil and shake aggressively to separate fries. Place cooked fries on a sheet tray and keep cold until ready for final cooking step. Wait for fry oil temperature to return to 300 degrees before continuing with next batch.
Yields – 7 pounds blanched potatoes
