French fries are the ultimate side, snack, appetizer… you name it. I love fries so much. It’s one of those situations that I literally can’t leave any on the plate, whether I make them at home or order them at a restaurant. I’ve always been a fan of the classic french fry, but I wanted to play around with it a little and created a new spin on it. The other night I was preparing all of the left overs from the week and put together a spread of all the things that I had prepared. I found a jar of teriyaki sauce so decided to make everything asian style. I was already planning on making french fries because I had the potatoes, but wasn’t sure how I would creatively incorporate it into that particular Friday Night dinner. So I dug into my spice cabinet and found sesame seed oil and ginger powder. Voila!
