Roast potato, chorizo and olives


This simple side makes a great accompaniment to a roast chook or a piece of crisp-skinned pan-roasted snapper. Add a green salad and dinner's done.

You'll need

1 kg floury potatoes, such as bintje, scrubbed and cut into wedges 80 ml (1/3 cup) extra-virgin olive oil 1 head of garlic, cloves separated 2 chorizo, thickly sliced 100 gm green Spanish olives, pitted and coarsely chopped 30 ml fino sherry 1 tbsp red wine vinegar To serve: oregano

Method

  • 01
  • Preheat oven to 200C. Place potato in a large saucepan of salted water, bring to the boil and cook until par-cooked (6-8 minutes), drain and set aside.
  • 02
  • Heat oil in a roasting tray large enough to hold potato in a single layer in oven (4-5 minutes). Add potato and garlic, season to taste, stir to coat in oil and roast, stirring occasionally, until starting to turn golden (15-20 minutes). Add chorizo, roast until crisp (10-15 minutes). Stir in olives, sherry and vinegar, scatter with oregano and serve hot.
