    • 10-12 garlic cloves, peeled
    • 2 cups vegetable oil for frying
    • 1 1/2 pounds russet potatoes
    • 2 tablespoons chopped, flat leaf parsley
    • Kosher or sea salt


Place garlic and 1/2 cup of oil in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat until garlic begins to sizzle. Let cook for 3-5 minutes. Do not brown. Strain, reserve both oil and garlic. Allow oil to cool completely. 

Combine reserved garlic oil and remaining oil in a large, deep skillet. Add potatoes. Oil should just cover the potatoes. Cook over high heat until oil bubbles. Allow to cook for 5 minutes or until the outsides become firm. Stir the potatoes. Continue to fry potatoes for about 15-20 minutes or until fries are golden brown. Stir occasionally while being careful to gently scrape any that stick to the bottom of the pan.

Transfer fries to a paper towel lined plate with a slotted spoon. Season immediately with salt to taste

Mix reserved garlic with parsley. Sprinkle over the fries. Serve immediately.
