Straw potatoes, also known as shoestring fries, are a quick, simple alternative to chips. Because the potatoes are chopped so finely, they crisp up brilliantly when deep-fried. Martin Wishart shows us how to cook them in this video.
Straw potatoes make a great snack or a brilliant accompaniment to steak, game and fish. Martin Wishart serves his straw potatoes with sea bream, glazed vegetables, and gourmand vinaigrette.
