Ingredients

4 medium Yukon gold potatoes, peeled

Kosher salt

2 cups duck fat, melted

Maldon salt

Directions

  1. Put the potatoes in a pot, cover with water, and liberally add kosher salt. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to simmer gently until the potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork. Drain thoroughly and let cool.
  2. Split the potatoes with a fork. In a skillet, bring the duck fat to the smoking point and add the potatoes. Do not move the potatoes until a golden crust has formed. Gently turn the potatoes to crisp them on all sides. Transfer to a plate and season with the Maldon salt.
