A favourite spice for Smoked Paprika Roasted Potatoes

This time around one of my all-time favourite spices, smoked paprika, comes into play in this version. We normally serve them when we make chicken or pork souvlaki but decided to share this idea now because they go so well with our new Souvlaki Roast Pork recipe.

The creamy lemon and oregano tzatziki that we serve with that roast is also delicious with these potatoes. Think of it as an amped up version of sour cream; so delicious together! You’ll find the tzatziki recipe with the Souvlaki Roast Pork recipe too.

Smoked Paprika Roasted Potatoes

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Smoked Paprika Roasted Potatoes - you'll want to serve these roast potatoes with everything from lamb to chicken souvlaki and more. Simple, flavourful and perfectly golden crispy. Delicious with your favourite tzatziki as a dip too.

Ingredients

  • 3 lb russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1½ to 2 chunks
  • ¼ cup olive oil, butter or other oil will work as well; a butter/olive oil combination is very good too
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1½ Tbsp smoked Paprika, more or less to taste
  • 1 tsp onion powder, optional
  • 1 whole garlic bulb broken into about 4-6 pieces

Instructions

  1. Parboil the potatoes in salted water for about 3-4 minutes, no longer.
  2. Meanwhile in a 375 degree F oven, heat a baking pan of sufficient size to hold your potatoes without crowding them. A glass or metal pan is fine, as long as it is well heated beforehand. This will help to prevent the potatoes from sticking to the pan.
  3. After parboiling, drain the potatoes and let them stand for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the salt, pepper, smoked paprika, onion powder and olive oil.
  5. Toss together with the unpeeled garlic cloves.
  6. Transfer the seasoned potatoes, garlic and oil to the hot baking pan. These should sizzle as they hit the pan; a good indication that they will not stick.
  7. Roast the potatoes for about 60-75 minutes or until they are nicely golden brown all over, turning them every 20 minutes or so.
  8. After the first 10 minutes, give the pan a shake to make sure the potatoes are not stuck to it.
  9. The roasted garlic may have to be removed before the potatoes are finished as it generally cooks faster. You can squeeze the roasted garlic out of the cloves to serve on the potatoes, which is particularly delicious if you are also serving them with tzatziki.

Made these with your Chicken Souvlaki and grilled flatbread. I cut up red skin potatoes without peeling them and precooked them in the microwave for a couple of minutes, tossed them with the seasonings and put them on the grill for 20 minutes. No muss, no fuss and delicious!!! Thank you so much for all the recipes you share :)

So delish...made it last last night. The garlic was amazing in it, too. I only used less than a TBSP of oil, though and used a silpat nestled iinto a roasting pan. Thanks!

This was a hit with my girls. I skipped the garlic because I wasn't exactly sure on what I was supposed to do but it still turned out great. I used baby potatoes and just just cut them in half because I hate peeling potatoes. I boiled them a couple minutes longer since they were thicker. My girls really like their roasted potatoes to be on crispy side side so I cut the cooking time a little and turned up the heat to 425 right at the end. It was a nice compliment to a BBQ Chicken done on the grill over some coals.
