Preheat oven to 400F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Wash, peel, and dice the potatoes into cubes of a similar size. Toss them in a bowl with olive oil and salt.
Place the potatoes on your prepared baking sheets. Do not overcrowd the pans, the potatoes should sit in a single layer.
Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden and crispy. Avoid flipping them if possible.
Meanwhile, prepare the spicy oil. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the olive oil and garlic and allow the garlic to fry for a minute. Do not allow to brown. Reduce heat to low and add the smoked paprika, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Mix and remove from heat. Allow the spices to bloom for a few minutes, stirring from time to time.
Remove the potatoes from the oven and pour the spicy oil onto your potatoes, toss until completely coated, and sprinkle with extra salt, cilantro, and lemon juice if desired. Serve immediately!
