Wash the potatoes and cut into wedges. Soak in cold water for at least 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 400 (200C) and line a large tray with parchment paper. You may need to use 2 trays.
When the wedges have been soaked drain them off and pat dry using a clean kitchen towel or paper. Transfer the dried wedges into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle over the chilli and smoked paprika. Add the olive oil and give the wedges a good mix using your hands.
Lay the wedges out on the tray or trays taking care not to crowd them. Place in the oven for around 20 minutes, turning once until cooked and crispy.
Remove form oven and transfer to a bowl and toss with salt to taste.
