Mushroom Bravas

Peel and dice the potatoes into 2 cm cubes.

Pre-cook the potatoes in a pot of boiling water until just tender. Drain.

Heat neutral oil over medium-high heat until a thermometer reads 200 °C. Transfer potatoes to oil in batches and cook until golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer potatoes onto paper towel and sprinkle with fine sea salt.

Cut the button mushrooms into quarters and repeat the frying process until they are golden brown. Drain on paper towel and sprinkle with salt while still hot.

Toss the mushrooms and potatoes together with the chopped parsley.

Pile onto plates and serve with plenty of spicy sauce for dipping.


Place all the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Allow to simmer for 15-20 minutes until the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat and set aside for serving.
