  1. Peel, then slice the potatoes very thinly.
  2. A mandolin does the best job of this and the slices should be as thin as a wafer.
  3. As you slice, drop them into deep, cold water.
  4. Bring a deep pan of frying oil to 190 C or 375 degrees F.
  5. Dry the potatoes thoroughly, then fry them for a couple minutes until they're crisp and golden.
  6. Drain them on paper towels and then season generously with salt.
