Pre­heat oven to 375 F (190 C). Line a rimmed bak­ing sheet with parch­ment pa­per and brush it lightly with a lit­tle oil. Place shred­ded po­ta­toes in a colan­der over a large bowl. Squeeze lemon juice over top and sprin­kle with the salt. Toss to coat and let mix­ture stand 10 min­utes to drain.
