“A fantastic Spanish tapa (by the way, the literal translation of patatas bravas is brave potatoes) that can be served as side dish or as part of a array of Spanish tapas. These have always been an item that goes first at my "Wine and Tapas" get togethers. This recipe has been adapted from "the tapas cookbook".”
