Patatas Bravas is a widely popular tapas item in Spain. It translates to "Fierce Potato". Crispy potatoes in a spicy tomato sauce and drizzled with garlicky mayo. I can say hands down it is one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. I took a bite and just took a moment to reflect. Wow. Food like this humbles and inspires me. The most simple ingredient combinations can create flavour magic. Do yourself a favour, make this, eat this...you need patatas bravas in your life, I promise.
I chose to roast my potatoes, and cut them into random sized chunks, but traditionally the potatoes are in smaller cubes and are deep fried. For my recipe, the trick is to cook the potates in salted boiling water first with baking soda. When you dump them into the strainer, shake the strainer around so the potatoes get "roughed up". This creates a surface area conducive to getting nice and crispy. Cool potatoes, then roast or fry to crispy spud perfection.
