  • 1 Tablespoon minced red onion

  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

    Place the potatoes on the prepared baking sheet. Place the baking sheet on the grill grates, close the lid, and bake until the potatoes offer little resistance when pierced with a sharp, thin-bladed knife, 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes. Remove the potatoes from the grill and let cool until safe to handle.

    While the potatoes cool, fill a large Dutch oven or other deep, heavy pot with peanut oil to a depth of 3-4 inches. Heat the oil over medium-high heat until the temperature reaches 400°F.

    In a small bowl, mix together the lemon zest and fleur de sel. Set aside.


    • 1/2 lemon zest

    • Tablespoon fleur de sel

    Use your hand to slightly flatten each potato to break the skins a bit.

    Working in batches to avoid overcrowding the pot, fry the potatoes in the hot oil until evenly browned all over, about 3 minutes. Remove from the oil with a spider or slotted spoon and transfer directly into a large bowl. Let the oil temperature return to 400°F between batches.
