Great...I've been looking for a decent bravas recipe for ages!!!
This is exactly what I was looking for. I enjoy this dish quite often at our local tapas place, and this taste and looked exactly like as it does there. It wasn't that hard to make either, which is nice. I will be making this again now I know the secret to the amazing sauce.
