  • Air Fryer


  • 3 Medium Potatoes russet or yellow
  • 2 tbsps melted butter
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • sea salt flakes or coarse sea salt to taste


  • In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, olive oil, garlic powder and parsley flakes. Set aside.
  • Carefully push a skewer through the centre of each potato.
  • Using a small, sharp knife, carefully cut the potatoes into a spiral. Hold the knife at a slight angle and slowly turn the potato as you cut around. The spiral slices should be about ¼ inch wide.
  • After you have cut around the entire potato, gently pull the slices apart along the length of the skewer.
  • Brush the melted butter over the potatoes paying attention to getting it between all of the spirals.
  • Place the potatoes in the air fryer basket, set the temperature to 390°F and cook for 20-22 minutes until the potatoes are crispy and golden.
  • Remove from the potatoes from the air fryer and sprinkle with sea salt flakes. If desired, garnish with parmesan cheese or chopped herbs.


  • If you find the potatoes hard to cut you can par-cook the them before skewering and cutting them. Poke a couple holes in the potatoes and pop them in the microwave for a couple of minutes to soften them. This will also reduce the air fryer time by a few minutes.
  • I use the metal skewers that came in my air fryer accessory kit, but you can use any small skewers that fit in your air fryer.
