A Slaying in Spain Patatas Bravas

⅓ cup olive oil

1 ½ teaspoons hot smoked paprika pimentón picante

1 ½ teaspoons sweet smoked paprika pimentón dulce

1-2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup chicken or vegetable broth

salt to taste


  • Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the hot and sweet smoked paprika and stir until combined.

  • Add 1 tablespoon of flour and stir until combined. Keep stirring for about a minute to toast the flour slightly.

  • Over a medium-low heat, add the broth very gradually, stirring constantly. The flour will absorb the liquid and leave you with a delicious sauce.

  • The sauce should start to thicken as you incorporate the broth; add more flour only if necessary to achieve the right consistency. It should be velvety and smooth, but not so thick that it holds its shape alone.

  • Reduce to low heat and simmer for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season with salt to taste.

  • Drizzle over some fried potatoes and enjoy!
