Preheat oven to 400°F. Peel potatoes and halve lengthwise; slice crosswise 1/2-inch thick. On a baking sheet, toss potatoes with olive oil; season with sea salt. Transfer half the potatoes to a second baking sheet; cook both sheets until potatoes are tender, tossing occasionally, 25-30 minutes. Combine butter, brown sugar, pecans, and cayenne pepper, divide evenly, and sprinkle on potatoes. Bake until sugar is caramelized and hard, about 10 minutes. Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings.
