It is advisable to pierce potatoes before air frying or baking as not only does it help release the hot steam, but it also soaks the flavors from the marinate.

I have used baby potatoes as they cook faster and can be served as a perfect bite size snack, however if you wish you can use small sized potatoes and cut them evenly.

Potatoes are versatile and easily adapt to all flavors. Feel free to use any seasonings of your choice such as garlic, cajun, rosemary. These flavors would work absolutely great! Sprinkling some salt and pepper should also be absolutely alright if you are short on other seasonings.
