2 russet potatoes, unpeeled
2 cups peanut oil
--(A must as it allows for a high-frying level without smoking, and imparts a great flavor)
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon ground pepper
½ teaspoon paprika
Pour peanut oil into a large heavy-bottomed deep-sided skillet so it is 2-inches deep, and heat to medium-high (345 degrees).
Slice the potatoes into 1/4-inch thick sticks and put in a bowl of cold water, swish to rinse starch off, and then remove from water, and place on layers of paper towels, patting dry.
Fry the potatoes for 5 minutes, then remove to a foil-lined baking sheet covered with paper towels, and let cool to room temperature.
Raise the heat of the oil to 360 degrees, or to high-heat. Fry the potatoes the second time, until golden brown and crispy for about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove to a newly foil-lined baking sheet lined with paper towels.
In a small bowl combine the salt, pepper, and paprika. Transfer the fries to a serving bowl, sprinkle with the salt mixture and serve. - Enjoy!
