- Preheat the oven medium. Alternatively the cooking can be done on top of the cooker, either in a heavy frying pan or in a casserole which will resist direct heat.
- Peel the potatoes and cut them into thick wedges. Pour half the oil into 4 individual.
- shallow earthenware casseroles or a small gratin dish. Put the casseroles or the dish into the oven and leave until the oil is smoking.
- Arrange the potatoes in the hot oil in single layer. Trickle on the rest of the oil, sprinkle with salt and return to the oven.
- Cook the potatoes until soft inside and crisp on the outside - this will take 25-35 minutes. Mix together the paprika and cayenne and sprinkle over the potatoes. Serve them hot in their cooking dish.
