  • 2 large russet potatoes Maris piper in UK
  • 1 tbs oil
  • 1 tbs Cajun seasoning from recipe below

Cajun Seasoning:

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/8-1 tsp cayenne pepper depending on taste
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp pepper

Dipping Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbs Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard


  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Peel potatoes and cut into wedges. Blanch the potatoes in the boiling salted water for 4 minutes; drain and rinse in cold water. Dry potatoes with paper towels.
  • Toss the potatoes with the oil and place them in the air fryer basket. Air fry for 25 minutes, shaking the basket a few times so the potatoes cook and brown evenly.
  • Mix all the seasoning ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle the potatoes with 1 tablespoon of the seasoning mix during the last 5 minutes of cook time. Shake well and you can give the potatoes a spritz of additional oil at this point.
  • For the dipping sauce, mix all the ingredients in a small bowl.
