Seaweed flavored Roasted Potatoes

One of my favorite ways to prepare Swedish summer potatoes!

While rice is one of Asian pantry’s staples, potatoes are absolutely European’s.

I honestly don’t know potatoes much and I am still learning! As little as I know about potatoes, Swedish summer potatoes are really the best. They are fresh, slightly sweet and not floury, quite small in size and their skin are soft which you can consume. Simply boil them in salted water, sometimes boiling with a small bunch of fresh dill, they are just so tasty.

Besides serving these summer potatoes with the above method, I also love them crispy and surely it will be a winner on any barbecue tables. To add extra ocean flavour into the potatoes, I boiled the potatoes with dehydrated local sugar kelp and air-fried everything together, everything came out crispy and packed with flavour.


  • About half a kilo summer potatoes
  • 2-3 pieces of dried sugar kelp (I used Nordic Seafarm)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp old bay seasoning
  • ½ tsp smoke paprika
  • 1 heap tbsp corn starch or plain flour
  • 1 tsp flaky sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • A pinch of sugar

Recipe Preparation

Put potatoes, dried sugar kelp and 1 tablespoon of salt in a medium pot and fill the pot with enough water to cover everything inside. Bring water to boil and parboiled potatoes for 5-8 minutes. Drain potatoes and sugar kelp. Mix all seasonings with potatoes until well coated. Preheat airfryer to 180C. Airfry for 12-15 minutes depending on your airfryer. Serve warm with your favorite dip, or try my siracha ranch.
