The seasoning included on the recipe card is from Emeril and totally optional. Feel free to use whatever seasonings you prefer. At a minimum, you should use some salt & pepper.

Skin on or Skin off

Peeling the potatoes is a personal preference. While some people prefer the rustic look and added fiber that comes from leaving the skin on, others may prefer the texture and appearance of peeled potato wedges. Ultimately, it depends on your taste preference and the desired outcome of your air fryer potato wedges!
