I've gone mad on potato wedges at the minute and think this Cajun flavouring from Schwartz is sooooooo yummy that if I buy a sachet I have to have it the same day whether I was planning to have potato wedges or not! It's a powder that you use with a bit of oil to coat raw potato wedges, then you cook them in the oven for delish tasting wedges that are loads more exciting than plain salt and pepper wedges!!!
The trick with this flavour of coating is to make sure you get the coating on evenly because if you accidentally get too much on one wedge this is spicey enough to make it feel like your mouth is burning for a minute! You don't have to peel the wedges and honest, this coating is wicked anyway but it's EVEN BETTER when you leave the peel on the potatoes.
The flavour of the wedges is yummy after they've been cooked, this isn't a mega hot tasting coating unless you eat too many wedges one after the other and then it can get a bit too much! lol There is a peppery flavour, and I can also taste the garlic in the coating. The wedges end up with a faint chilli flavour as well and that's a gorgeous taste.... I'm not always mad keen on the taste of chilli but it goes proper nice with the rest of the ingredients. I love the way the flavour has got a nice kick but it doesn't blow your head off like a lot of cajun stuff, this is the perfect hotness I reckon because it starts off warm and gets warmer but doesn't actually ever get to a point where the wedges get TOO spicey.
When you first cook the wedges you'll probably think there isn't enough coating on them but you only need a thin layer to get a nice crispy spicey coating on the wedges. You can't tell that you've used oil on them because they don't have a greasy flavour or anything, the coating is actually quite dry and that helps them feel even crispier as you eat them. It's important not to overcook the wedges because sometimes if you poke one with a fork it won't feel done properly but that's because the coating feels a bit hard and you have to use your teeth a bit to get through it and if you leave the potatoes in the oven for too long the coating does go a bit too tough.
The sachets aren't very fat but there is enough powder to do about 600g of potato wedges, that's enough for 4 people if you're having the wedges with something else or 2 decent portions if you're just sharing some wedges for a snack.
Recommended..... delish potato wedges!!!
