Ingredients

Patatas Bravas

  • 1 bag one-bite potatoes
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • kosher salt to taste (I like quite a bit of salt on my potatoes)

Aioli

  • 1/2 cup mayonaise (use the real stuff here)
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, smashed into a paste (again, use the real thing)
  • kosher salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Place potatoes and 1/4 cup of water in a large, microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap (make sure your plastic wrap is microwave-safe). 

  2. Microwave potatoes for 5 minutes, or until fork-tender.

  3. Drizzle olive oil in a large skillet, and turn stove to medium-high heat. When olive oil starts to shimmer (~30 seconds), carefully add potatoes. 

  4. While potatoes are cooking, mix all aioli ingredients together in a small bowl. Stir until combined. 

  5. After potatoes start to get crispy and golden-brown, remove from stove and serve immediately with aioli on the side.
