Shark in the water – V V Brown
Today is a special day because it’s le Barbu’s birthday so I dedided that I would post his recipe, his tortilla. I’ve never done a tortilla because it’s his specialty and I really enjoy seeing him being busy with potatoes and knives and oil :) He always do it on the moment, he adjusts the recipe with the eggs size, potatoes and level of hungriness but I’ll post the reference recipe.
Olive oil, 6 medium size potatoes, 1 onion, 8 eggs, salt and pepper.
Prep: 10/15mn — Cook: 15mn + 15mn
Peal and dice the potatoes but don’t mesure, if they’re not the same size it’s completely okay. Heat a centimeter of olive oil in a large pan. When it’s hot, add the potatoes and cover with a lid. When the potatoes are almost cooked, add the minced onion and let it cook until the potatoes are melted. Dry the potatoes and onion with a colander but keep a little bit of olive oil in the pan. In a large bowl, break the eggs and whisk them, add the potatoes and onion, salt and pepper. Pour everything back into the pan, on a medium heat. When the edges are cooked, turn the tortilla-to-be over with the help of a plate. Put the uncooked side of the tortilla-to-be facing the pan and allow to cook for almost 5mn, probably less. And voilà, your kitchen smells deliciously good and you are going to be very happy to taste that tortilla.
Le Barbu tells me to precise that when he makes the tortilla he doesn’t really count the minutes, it’s all about feeling… Talent you know what I mean? Ahah
We really hope you’ll enjoy this recipe and wish you a lovely week-end. Des bisous
