Preparation method

  1. For spiced potato wedges, preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

  2. Mix the spices and salt together in a bowl with the olive oil, then add the potatoes and toss well to coat thoroughly.

  3. Tip out onto a flat oven tray and roast for 30 minutes, turning half way through, until the wedges are golden-brown, crunchy around the edges but tender when pierced with a knife.

  4. For the wings, preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.

  5. Place the wings onto a roasting tray in the oven and roast for 15-20 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked through.

  6. Meanwhile, make the dressing. Heat a frying pan until hot, add the extra virgin olive oil and garlic and cook for a couple of minutes over a gentle heat – you don’t want to burn the garlic. Add the smoked paprika and sherry vinegar.

  7. Heat a clean frying pan until hot, add the olive oil and padron peppers and then fry for 2-3 minutes, or until the peppers are charred. Add some salt.

  8. Pile the peppers into a serving bowl and top with some more sea salt.

  9. To serve, put the wings onto a serving bowl and drizzle with some of the warm garlic and chilli dressing. Serve with the wedges and peppers.
