Patatas Bravas



Potatoes:
New Potatoes - boiled with skin on and then chopped into small 2cm pieces
Sea Salt
Ground Pepper
Red Chilli
1 Garlic Clove
1/2 Lime Juice

Sauce:
Passata
Ground Pepper
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
Red Chilli

  • In a small pan started to cook down the passata, paprika, pepper, salt and red chilli.
  • Use as much chilli as you want depending on how spicy you like it.  I used about a tsp.
  • You want a thick sauce.

  • Heat some oil in a frying pan until it is really hot.
  • Throw in the cooked potatoes with the chopped garlic, and red chilli.
  • Tip on the lime juice and fry everything together.
  • Cook through until browned on all sides and slightly crispy.
  • Add the salt and pepper to taste.
  • Tip into serving dish and pour the tomato sauce on the top.
Top Tip: This will be really nice served with a grilled chicken breast or with the chorizo and cider tapas dish.
