Oven Fries with Rosemary and Sea Salt

Herb-iforous heaven lol!
So summer doesn't officially start until next week but I'm well on my way to integrating lighter recipes into my cooking repertoire for the summer season. I usually make oven fries at home since deep frying is such a task having to pull out a large pot and so much oil. I also believe oven fries are so much healthier for you and its easier to integrate different flavors with this method in my opinion. For this particular recipe I used Idaho potatoes but russets, yukon golds, and red potatoes should work just fine. This recipe also gives you so much leeway in the variety of herbs and spices you can use, the possibilities are endless. These fries are really quick and tasty, I paired it with a salmon burger but you can let these flavorful fries accompany your favorite steak, bbq chicken, burgers, or grilled fish.
