Jorge Castillo: This is a recipe that I enjoyed when I was in Spain. It was served as a side dish at many restaurants.
Glenn Lindgren: If Jorge enjoyed it, it has to be good because he usually hates mayonnaise!
Jorge Castillo: I only eat mayonnaise in this dish and in Imperial Rice.
Glenn Lindgren: So if you are one of those people who hate mayonnaise, try this recipe anyway. You might really like it.
Raúl Musibay: Make sure you use a good quality peanut oil heated to frying temperature. That will keep too much oil from soaking into the potatoes!
The classic fried potato dish that has graced many a tapas bar menu in Madrid.
INGREDIENTS:8 medium new potatoes, unpeeled and cut into quarters
Meanwhile, mix mayonnaise, garlic, and cilantro. (NOTE: this dish is traditionally made with parsley. We think cilantro gives this dish a nice "bite.")
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Remove the potatoes from the oil and drain thoroughly, patting lightly with a paper towel to remove any excess oil.
Lightly toss the hot potatoes with the mayonnaise mixture.
Serve immediately .
