1 To pre-cook the wedges, heat a large pot of boiling water, add salt. Place the potato wedges in the water and cook for 10 minutes. Be careful not to overcook the wedges, they should be firm and not too soft.

4

2 Heat the oil in a large pot and then deep-fry the wedges on a high heat until golden brown and crispy. Remove the wedges from the oil, place in a bowl lined with paper towel and sprinkle with Hinds Potato Spice. Serve with the Portuguese chicken wings and lemon wedges on the side.

Chef's Tip

You can also grill the chicken wings in the oven. Combine all the ingredients with the wings (but not the water). Grill the meat on both sides for 10 minutes, until the skin is crispy. If you are short on time, use frozen potato wedges instead.
