Spicy Potatoes with Lemon-Garlic Aioli

Spicy Potatoes with Lemon-Garlic Aioli

These spicy potatoes with lemon-garlic aioli are my daughter’s new favorite dish. The potatoes turned out to be smoky, spicy, crispy and so delicious! Dipping the crisp potatoes in the lemon-garlic aioli made them extra special and we all really REALLY loved them. I served these spicy potatoes with simple pork chops & roasted asparagus and my whole family thought it was a very tasty meal.

How to Make Spicy Potatoes with Lemon-Garlic Aioli

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.

Parboil the diced potatoes by placing in a pot of hot water and cook on medium-high, uncovered, for 8 minutes or until just tender. Drain the potatoes then place on a few towels to dry. 

Meanwhile, make the seasoning rub by combining the smoked paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, onion powder, and crushed red pepper flakes together and mix well.

Place the dried potatoes in a large bowl then drizzle with the olive oil; mix well. Sprinkle the seasoning mix on the potatoes along with some sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Gently mix until evenly coated. Pour the seasoned potatoes onto the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 25 minutes, stirring and rotating baking sheet halfway through cooking. Add minced garlic and toss to coat evenly. Continue to bake for 1-2 minutes.

Once the potatoes are crisp and cooked through, remove them from the oven and place them on a serving plate. Serve immediately with the lemon-garlic aioli on the side. Enjoy!

    1. Carol,

      I’m so glad you liked them. I haven’t tried this recipe with sweet potatoes but I think they would probably be very tasty! Let me know how they turn out if you give it a try.
