The South Meets the Mediterranean

Last night’s remoulade became the marinade for tonight’s chicken kebabs. The chicken came out so tender and flavorful. I served it with green beans and “patatas bravas” from “The Mediterranean Table. Tonight’s dinner was a fusion of flavors, but then, they usually are. It was a little Mediterranean mixed with a little Southern/Creole.

Patatas Bravas

potatoes your choice, peeled and cooked until slightly tender
shallots, minced
garlic, minced
olive oil
sherry vinegar
tomatoes, large dice
chipotle chilies with sauce (optional, if you like spicy)
dried chilies
salt & pepper to taste
parsley, chopped

Saute garlic and shallots in olive oil for about 3 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients, and cook down until sauce is thickened, for about 10 minutes. Set aside. In a separate pan, cook the potatoes in olive oil and a little bit of butter until slightly browned and cooked. Adjust salt & pepper. Add tomato mixture and top with chopped parsley. Manga.
