  1. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F. 
  2. Soak the potato wedges in a bowl of water for 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes and then fully pat them dry with paper towels or a lint-free dish cloth.
  3. Layer a baking sheet with 2 tablespoons oil and generously sprinkle with salt and pepper. 
  4. Add the potatoes to the pan and drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and spread them evenly in a single layer on the pan. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until the bottoms are golden brown, about 10 minutes. Flip with a spatula and cook until the other side is golden brown, another 10 to 13 minutes. 
  5. In a small saute pan, melt the butter with the garlic and let the garlic gently cook over medium-low heat until fragrant, 5 to 7 minutes. 
  6. When the potatoes are cooked, toss them with the garlic butter and fresh herbs.
