Patatas bravas with steamed tilapia

Patatas bravas is typical Spanish dish (tapa) which contains potatoes and spicy tomato sauce. Something spicy in our family – always welcome. We really like this dish, mainly when we go to Spanish restaurant it is always one of our tapas. 


What do you need: 

250 g Spanish chorizo

potatoes (I always count 2 – 3 potatoes per person)

1/2 tsp cumin

1 tbsp cayenne pepper or hot chilli powder 

1 tbsp smoked paprika powder 

1 pieces of chilli 

2 garlic cloves

8 – 10 tomatoes

750 g tilapia (or other fish according to your taste)

vegetable mix (according to your taste)

olive oil

1 onion


You will need couple of pans at the beginning 🙂 Take first one, bigger one, and add oil. Afterwards, add chopped onion, crushed garlic cloves and finely chopped chilli. Fry everything until the onions softens and add cayenne pepper with paprika powder. In the mean time, cut tomatoes into small pieces and add them to the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook the whole mixture for about 20 minutes or until the sauce is thicker. If you prefer smooth sauce, blend it with blender, otherwise leave it like that.



While is sauce cooking, peel potatoes and cut them into smaller pieces. Cut as well chorizo. Take a bigger pan (I took Wok pan) and add oil. Heat it up and add cut potatoes and chorizo into the pan. You can add a bit of water and cover it at the beginning. Fry it together until are potatoes soft. At the end you can just spoon the sauce over the potatoes or like me, mix the sauce with potatoes and chorizo. While is potato mix getting ready, steam your fish – I picked this time tilapia. I have amazing steam cooker and I prepared fish with vegetables together and it took approximately 15 – 20 minutes.

When you have everything ready, you can serve with patatas bravas and you can enjoy it! 😉

      1. This year I was in Fuerteventura, and they offered papas arrugadas, as national dish. I understand, that papas = potatoes 🙂 But talking about tapas.. my favourite is so hard to choose. Olives? Ham?… Everything 🙂 🙂
