  • 4 Idaho® Russet Potatoes, peeled and cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • Canola oil, as needed for frying
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, for frying
  • 1 small green bell pepper, de-stemmed, seeded and thinly sliced

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 ounces fresh parsley, finely chopped

  4. While still hot, place fried potatoes and onion-pepper mixture in a bowl. Combine ground coriander and fennel; sprinkle over vegetables. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss to combine.
  5. Transfer to serving bowls and garnish with fresh parsley and lemon zest.
