Patatas Bravas

5 from 2 reviews


  • 8 ounces small new potatoes or fingerling potatoes
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Sauce:
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce of your choice


  1. Wash the taters and cut into bite-size pieces. Boil in water for 5-8 minutes until mostly cooked but still firm in the center. Drain.
  2. Make the sauce by whisking together the mayo, oil and hot sauce. Add a little salt if you think it needs it.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high and add the potatoes.
  4. Fry for about two minutes, then stir gently. It’s okay if they break up a little. Continue cooking for a few minutes until the potatoes are getting crispy.
  5. Remove with a slotted spoon to a serving dish and drizzle the mayonnaise sauce over the top.
  6. If desired, sprinkle with paprika or cayenne pepper.
  7. Serves 4 as a side dish, 8 as part of a tapas menu
