Spicy Garlic Potato Wedges | The MOST Addictive Potatoes I´ve Ever Had

These Spicy Garlic Potato Wedges are so good, you won´t be able to have just one. Like seriously, they are the most addictive potatoes I´ve ever had. They´re packed with flavors, easy to make and all done in about 40 minutes.

Spicy Garlic Potato Wedges
What gives these potatoes that spicy kick is the Hot Smoked Spanish Paprika. An essential ingredient in this recipe. As it adds the perfect balance of smokiness and heat, but without being overly spicy. If you want more heat, you can add in a little chili powder.

Spicy Garlic Potato Wedges
For the potatoes I used russet potatoes. But you can use any type of potatoes you like. The secret is to make sure all the potatoes are similar in size. That way all the wedges can be cut into the same size and cook evenly.

TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: You can serve these potato wedges warm or even at room temperature. They will hold for up to 5 days in the fridge in an air-tight container. To reheat, you can just dry heat them in a fry pan or even add them into the oven for a couple of minutes.

Author Albert Bevia @ Spain on a Fork


  • 2 1/4 lbs russet potatoes 1 kilogram
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 45 ml
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp hot smoked Spanish paprika 2.50 grams
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley 15 grams
  • pinch sea salt
  • dash black pepper


  1. Wash and pat dry the potatoes, then cut into wedges, I like to cut each potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half in half, and then cut each half at a diagonal cut to create the wedges, about 3 wedges from each half for a total of 12 wedges from each potato

  2. Add the potato wedges into a large bowl, along with 1 tbsp (15 ml) extra virgin olive oil, sea salt & black pepper, toss together until well mixed

  3. Transfer the potato wedges into a baking tray lined with foil paper, all in a single layer and skin side down

  4. Add into a preheated oven, bake + broil option (bottom + top heat) 210 C - 410 F

  5. Menawhile, heat a small fry pan with a medium heat and add in 2 tbsp (30 ml) extra virgin olive oil, roughly chop the garlic and add into the pan, mix continuously, after 30 to 45 seconds and the garlic is fragrant, turn off the heat, add in the hot smoked paprika and a kiss of sea salt, mix together and set aside

  6. Once the potato wedges are cooked through, about 30 minutes (you can always pierce them with a toothpick to ensure they are done), remove from the oven, transfer the potatoes into the same bowl you tossed them in earlier, add the spicy garlic sauce over the potatoes and the parsley, gently toss together

  7. Add the potatoes into a serving dish, serve warm or at room temperature, enjoy!

    Made this for dinner last night and it was a big hit! Had to substitite a couple of ingredients – didn’t have any hot smoked paprika, so used a mixture of hot paprika and sweet smoked paprika instead, and had to use dried parsley instead of fresh. So easy to prepare and really tasty. We had them with some halloumi fries and salad, but the potatoes were definitely the star of the show. Be warned though: the recipe card says this serves 4, but there were only 2 of us and we demolished nearly the whole lot. You might want to make a double batch if you’re feeding 4. These are some seriously tasty spuds! Thanks for another great recipe Albert 😊
