Patatas Bravas in Benidorm

Patatas Bravas in Benidorm - Lyklema Fine Art

Zwart's painting immediately evokes holiday pleasure. Stroll along the boulevard, have an aperitif in the first bar and eat on the sidewalk at a restaurant. Tapas with drinks of course. Tapa means lid and that is how the tapas are often offered. As a 'free' snack with a drink on top of your glass of white wine, for example. In our opinion, the evening meal can also consist of all kinds of Spanish snacks such as Meatballs in tomato sauce, Tortilla, Chorizo, Shrimps in garlic and red pepper, Manchego cheese, potato croquettes, grilled parika, Pinchos with cheese and anchovy cream, Gazpacho or Salmajero, Serano ham with mozzarella on toast, fried eggplant with honey, fried jalapeno pepper, garlic champions with Parmesano, olives and of course Papatas Bravas that Arie Zwart certainly ate in Benidorm. And of course the next morning a Spanish breakfast with Churos from Juan Gris.

We would like to provide the simple dish for this. Fry the potatoes with a pinch of salt, some garlic and some paprika powder in a pan with sufficient oil. When almost done, add freshly chopped parsley. Serve with aioli (garlic mayo) or a typical sauce for Patata Bravas, mixing the following ingredients well and letting them soak in for a while. 3 tablespoons oil, 2 teaspoons smoked paprika powder, 200 ml stock, 1 tablespoon tomato puree, 1 clove garlic, 1 shallot and some cornstarch.
