Recipes - Potato Wedges w Gremolata

Potato wedges: affordable, versatile, tasty and much healthier than the premade deep fried variety.  They're pretty quick to whip up, not including oven time, and can be flavoured in many ways.  My twist is to sprinkle them with gremolata.  These must be good cause my friends and family often request I make them.

3 medium golden delight potatoes
2 tbs gremolata

Step 1 - Preheat oven to 220°C. Brush a baking tray with olive oil. 
Step 2 - Wash potatoes very well, scrubbing to ensure all dirt is removed.  Prick each a few time with a fork and microwave for approx 2 minutes on medium-high.
Step 3 - Halve potatoes and cut into wedge shapes.  Place wedges in the baking tray in a single layer.  Season well with salt and pepper and drizzle with a little olive oil.
Step 4 - Bake for 1 hour, turning halfway through.  After the first 15 minutes, reduce heat to 180°C for the remainder of the cooking time.
Step 5 - In the last five minutes of cooking time, turn potatoes so they are sitting on their skin, sprinkle with gremolata and return to oven for the five minutes.
