Servings: 6 servings
For the potato wedges
- 3 large baking potatoes
- 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp Kosher salt
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp onion powder
- ½ tsp Italian seasoning
For the chimichurri
- ½ cup red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp Kosher salt
- 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
- 1 medium shallot finely chopped
- ½ medium Fresno chile finely chopped
- ½ cup fresh cilantro roughly chopped
- ½ cup fresh parsley roughly chopped
- ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
Prepare the potatoes. Preheat oven to 475F. Cut each potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 3 or 4 wedges, depending on how large the potato is. Place wedges on a rimmed baking sheet, then drizzle with 2 Tbsp olive oil.
Season the potatoes. Combine 1 tsp Kosher salt, ½ tsp garlic powder, ½ tsp onion powder, and ½ tsp Italian seasoning in a small bowl, then mix. Sprinkle evenly over the potatoes.
Bake the potato wedges. Bake until crispy on the outside and tender in the middle, about 30-35 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
Make the chimichurri. Place ½ cup red wine vinegar, 1 tsp Kosher salt, 3 cloves chopped garlic, 1 chopped shallot, and chile in a glass jar or mixing bowl, then let sit for about 15 minutes. Add ½ cup chopped cilantro, ½ cup chopped parsley, and ¾ cup olive oil, then whisk to combine (or place lid on, if using a jar, and shake well).
Serve immediately. Serve potato wedges with chimichurri drizzled on top or on the side.
- Chimichurri will keep in a fridge for 2-3 weeks (vinegar based sauces last a long time!).
