For those of you that follow Spain on a Fork, you know my love for potatoes. They´re such a humble and simple ingredient, yet the possibilities are endless. Today, I present to you Smoky Spanish Potatoes with Garlic & Lemon. Truly, one of the best tasting potato dishes ever.
These Smoky Spanish Potatoes with Garlic & Lemon are loaded with a hurricane of flavors, they´re easy to make and it all comes together in about 30 minutes. Serve them as a side dish or even as a tapas appetizer.
To make this dish I used yukon gold potatoes, but you can use any potatoes you like. I also peeled the potatoes, that way they can absorb all that beautiful smoky flavor.
TIPS & TRICKS to Make this Recipe: The real star of these potatoes is the Sweet Smoked Spanish Paprika. It´s what gives this dish that incredible smoky flavor. On another note, I bake + broiled my potatoes at the same time. If your oven doesn´t do both functions, just bake them for an extra 5 to 10 minutes. Making sure to flip them a little over half ways of the cooking time.
