Crispy, spicy and simply irresistible – patatas bravas with spicy tomato and pepper salsa are the epitome of Spanish tapas cuisine.
These tasty potato bites are a true classic that can be found in any tapas bar in Spain. Whether as an appetizer, side dish or simply as a snack in between, the Spanish counterpart to fries simply always works.
Patatas bravas are basically nothing more than fried potato pieces. But one should not be fooled by their simple appearance, because their secret lies in their sauce. The "Bravas sauce" is the centerpiece of this tapas delicacy. It consists of a mixture of tomatoes, peppers, garlic and spices, which provide a pleasant spiciness. The sauce is poured over the crispy fried potatoes, which will be perfect with a little aioli. Pommes Schranke sends its regards.
