Crispy, moreish baked potatoes cooked with just olive oil and salt low fat to boot.


  1. Heat oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6.
  2. Scrub the baking potatoes, then pat dry. Slice lengthways into three. Drizzle olive oil over a large baking sheet.
  3. Place the potatoes on the baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, rub all over, then generously sprinkle with sea salt.
  4. Bake for 40-45 minutes (longer for extra crispiness) turning halfway, until golden brown and tender.

I can't fairly give this recipe any stars because I messed it up. I didn't think 1 tsp. of salt looked like enough, so I added a bit more...and my potatoes came out too salty! The salt kind of dissolved in the olive oil, so it was easy to add too much! I am willing to try this again though - following the recipe this time! - and I can say that the potatoes were tender and smelled wonderful cooking.
