There are only a few things I can eat anytime of the day and air fryer potato wedges is one of them. The crunchy exterior and soft, creamy interior is one of the better food texture duos out there that I just can’t get enough of it.

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you because what makes this potato wedges recipe so special is the ginger scallion sauce the wedges are covered it. It’s insanely delicious! While the potato wedges are cooking, a simple ginger scallion oil sauce is prepared and finished when the wedges are ready to pop out of the air fryer–perfect timing!

I did some heavy research before purchasing an air fryer and ended up purchasing the Cosori Air Fryer Max XL and love it. This is not an ad for the appliance, rather sharing the model I use to make this recipe. Keep reading to learn how I make Cosori air fryer potato wedges!

What Is Ginger Scallion Sauce?

I decided to take my roasted potato game up a notch and add a little something I typically enjoy over rice, chicken, fried eggs–literally everything: ginger scallion sauce (or ginger scallion oi)l. This salty, slightly onion-y condiment that is typically accompanied with Cantonese poached chicken, is also great with fish and guaranteed to convert any ginger hater.

How Long Do You Need to Air Fry Potato Wedges?

For one pound of wedges that are single layered in my 5.8 quart air fryer basket, the total cook time is 28 minutes at 380°F. Keep in mind this time may vary depending on the make, model, watts, and size of your air fryer.

Tips and Tricks

  • Soak potatoes for 10-15 minutes to remove excess starch, this also helps with a crispier exterior.
  • Ginger scallion sauce yields roughly one cup, but you will only need 2-3 tablespoons. Use remaining oil on stir-fry vegetables, roasted chicken, noodles. The possibilities are endless!

  • Add chopped scallions, ginger, garlic, and kosher salt to a medium-sized mixing bowl.Heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat for 3-5 minutes. If you have a kitchen thermometer handy, you want the temperature of the oil to reach 350ºF. If you don't have a thermometer, you'll want to achieve a noticeably thin, shimmery oil.
  • Carefully pour the oil into the bowl containing the ingredients. You’ll notice a good amount of sizzling as the oil comes into contact with the ginger-scallion ingredients, that’s expected.
