Sometimes we have a night in with “bits and pieces” dinner, such as this one with Spanish theme. This is perfect for summer evenings. Don’t forget a good quality Spanish red wine!

Ingredients

  • 2 potatoes
  • olive oil

For the sauce:

  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 onion

  • 1/2 Tsp Tabasco
  • 1 Tsp thyme
  • 2 Tbs ketchup
  • 3 Tbs mayo
  • salt

Cut potato in small pieces ( it will cook faster), then boil for about 5-7 minutes. Drain and leave on the side. Tnen add some olive oil to the pan and quickly fry it for a few minutes until gold in colour. Remove from the pan and put in a larger bowl.

Mix all sauce ingredients well and then add to potatoes and stir until all potato pieces are covered with sauce.
