Patatas Bravas

This is a classic Spanish Tapas recipe that is easy enough and has an amazing dipping sauce. The dish itself it pretty much just fancy hash browns, but the sauce, ooooh the sauce, it is to die for!!

  • 1 large potato per person
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 table spoons onion, minced
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • between 1/4 teaspoon and 1/4 tablespoon of tabasco sauce depending on how spicy you like things
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground thyme
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup mayo

Cube the potatoes and sprinkle salt and pepper on them. Fry in a large pan on the stove until cooked/golden brown. That's the end of the potato part. Very simple.

Now for the amazing sauce. Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil to a pan and fry the garlic and onion until the onion is soft. Turn off heat. Add tabasco sauce and thyme. Stir well. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the mayo and ketchup. Again stir well. The sauce is best cold so chill for 15-20 minutes.

And enjoy! This is probably one of the simplest tapas recipes there is. Very hard to mess up. Ans so delicious. Best paired with Sangria.
