Patatas Bravas with Saffron Aioli

Say hello to one of our all-time favorite ways to eat potatoes: patatas bravas, the traditional Spanish tapa that’s fried until crisp, tossed in a tomato pan sauce and dipped in saffron aioli. Thanks to Kylie Mazon-Chambers’s cookbook, Share + Savor, we’re making it at home ASAP.

“While this is like a Spanish take on French fries,” Mazon-Chambers writes, “the shape of the potatoes is more similar to American home fries. And rather than making the aioli from scratch, mayonnaise is simply dressed up by stirring in lemon juice, a bit of olive oil and garlic.” We do love a shortcut.

To really up the ante, she suggests you pair this dish with chorizo and Iberico ham in a Spanish-inspired charcuterie spread. Are you drooling yet? We are.
