I´m spanish, and I think this recipe is quite good except for the first step, you shouldn´t, never, cook the potatoes before frying them. another advise:the oil must be very hot for the frying.

Delicious! I wanted it to be like the ones I have had in Spain, so did not cook the potatoes first. I usually lower the fat in recipes, but this is one you really cannot, at least olive oil is a good fat. A must for any potato lover!
