How to make Spanish potato salad

0
Your rating: None
This simple and spicy potato salad gets its heat from fresh chillies and raw garlic. Use either a mild chilli such as jalapeno, or a hot one like Scotch bonnet, according to taste.
What you'll need: 
450g new potatoes
1 jalapeno or other chilli
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic, or more to taste
1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon mild paprika powder
Whisk
Mortar & pestle or chef's knife
1: 
Scrub potatoes and cut into bite-sized chunks. Very small potatoes can be cooked whole. There is no need to peel them.
2: 
Bring water to the boil in a medium-sized saucepan. Add potatoes and fresh chilli and return water to a gentle boil. Lower heat and cook for 8-12 minutes, or until potatoes are just tender. Be careful not to overcook.
3: 
Meanwhile, crush garlic with salt in a mortar and pestle. Alternatively, mince garlic with salt using a chef's knife. In either case, the garlic should be reduced to a paste.
4: 
Measure olive oil into a small mixing bowl and gradually whisk in lemon juice. Then whisk in garlic paste and paprika.
5: 
When potatoes are tender, drain them and place in a serving bowl. Peel chilli, chop it into small pieces and add to potato. Drizzle dressing over top and mix gently.
Conclusion: 
Best served warm or at room temperature. Makes two generous servings.
Tips: 
Cook potatoes at a gentle boil and test often to avoid overcooking. They are ready when the tip of a sharp knife slides in easily.
