Classic Patatas Bravas
Classic Patatas Bravas

Ingredients

Method

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp hot smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp crushed chilli flakes
  • ½ tsp tabasco sauce
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 125ml passata
  • 1.5kg floury potatoes (eg Sebago or Dutch Cream), peeled
  • 180ml oil for shallow frying
  • Salt
  • Make the salsa by heating the oil in a pan, then adding the paprika, the chilli flakes, the tabasco, and the vinegar. Mix well, then stir in the passata. Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Cut the potatoes into small and even-sized chunks. Cook in a large pan of salted water for 5-7 minutes, or until just tender. Drain well.
  • Heat the frying oil in a large pan, and shallow fry in a single layer (you may have to do these in batches) for 10-12 minutes or until golden and crisp. Serve in a bowl, with the salsa drizzled over the top.
