How to Make Patatas Bravas
- Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a skillet on MEDIUM heat. Add the potatoes and cook for about 15 minutes or until evenly brown.
- In the meantime, heat up the remaining olive oil in a skillet on MEDIUM to MEDIUM-LOW heat. Add the grated onion and cook gently for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sherry, simmering for 1 minute to burn off the alcohol.
- Reduce the heat to LOW and add the diced tomatoes, Spanish smoked paprika, sugar, and bay leaf. Cook for 10 minutes, adding a small amount of water if necessary to stop the mixture from thickening too much or drying out.
- Transfer the cooked potatoes to a serving platter and pour over the tomato sauce mixture; mix well. Garnish with the orange zest and flat leaf parsley. Serve hot.
