  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Put the potatoes in a large shallow roasting pan, add the olive oil, and toss well with your hands to coat.
  2. Sprinkle with plenty of salt, then roast in the oven for 40 minutes or until they are crispy and golden on the outside and tender inside.
  • Add a pinch of hot paprika to the potatoes when you toss them with the oil.
