  • cup mayonnaise
  • 1 ½ teaspoon red curry paste
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce
  • ½ teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 pound Russet potatoes (2 - 3 medium)
  • 3 cups canola or peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mild or hot kimchi
  • 2 green onions, sliced thin
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 10 slices jalapeño, pickled or fresh
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
  1. In a bowl, whisk to combine, mayonnaise, curry paste, Sriracha, and fish sauce.
  2. Slice potatoes into 1/4-inch thick sticks. Heat oil in a large heavy pot over medium-high heat until oil reaches 350 degrees F (see note above). Being careful not to overcrowd, fry potatoes in small batches for 2 minutes per batch. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Again working in batches and with oil still at 350 degrees F, fry potatoes in small batches for about 5 - 6 minutes a batch or until golden. Drain on a paper towel and season with salt.
  3. Place fries on a serving plate and top with kimchi, onions, cilantro, jalapeño, prepared sauce, and lime juice. Serve immediately.
