Oven Fries with Lemon Rosemary Salt

These fries make a nice snack or side for lunch or light dinner. The boys and I threw these together along with some pizzas for our friend Bobby who was visiting from New York. 

Lemon Rosemary Salt
1 - 2 Tbs fresh rosemary
1 lemon zested
2 -3 Tbs sea salt

Combine ingredients using a mortar and pestle adding enough salt until the mixture seems dry.

3-4 russet potatoes

Wash the potatoes to remove dirt and slice into fries an inch or less thick. Soak the fries in cold water for 2 hours or overnight. Then parboil in salted water for 5 or 10 minutes. Drain and pat dry. Place on a baking sheet and brush with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 420 degrees for 20 minutes or until crispy. Sprinkle with the lemon rosemary salt and serve.
