Perrinnaise Potato Salad

This is a simple recipe that takes no time to make. Basic potato salad with a twist, and my partner loves it.


Ingredients (for two people):
  • 4 x Desiree Potato
  • 1 x Spring Onion
  • 3 x Smoked Bacon Eyes
  • 4 Tablespooons Perri Perri Mayonnaise (e.g. Nando’s Perrinnaise)
Method:
  • Wash the potatoes thoroughly and cut into 1cm*1cm cubes
  • Place cubed potatoes into a pot with a dash of salt and boil until cooked but still firm (approx 15-20 mins)
  • Drain and allow to cool
  • Grill (or fry) the Bacon and chop into tiny squares and add to the potatoes
  • Finely Slice the Spring Onion and add to the potatoes
  • Drop in the Perrinnaise and mix well until all ingredients are mixed and coated.

    My mouth is watering just looking at this recipe.
    Two questions:
    What are smoked bacon eyes?
    What would be an American substitute for Nando’s Perrinnaise? Is it just mayonnaise?

      This is what Smoked English Bacon looks like:

      This is what we would call a “short rasher” piece of bacon. That big meaty part? That’s the eye. It’s very lean and crisps up a treat when done right. I tend to remove the rashers and set them aside for recipes where I need more of the fat to be an aspect of the recipe, but in this case, we definitely neither want nor need additional fat in the salad.

      I choose the smoked bacon because it adds an additional element of awesomeness flavour enhancement.

      The Perrinnaise is a pre-manufactured Pirri Pirri (a popular Portuguese Chilli) Mayonnaise which is available in a chain of Nando’s Chicken Stores and sold in most Supermarkets here now.

      I’ll make an effort to make a batch of home made whole-egg Mayonnaise over the next (few?) week(s) which you can replicate for yourself and add the Pirri Pirri to. In the meantime, you could buy a good Mayonnaise (Paul Newman doesn’t make a bad one actually) and add some Pirri Pirri (or other favoured chilli) to the mix.

      Hope that helps … Now I need to remember where I left that scrap of paper that I wrote my Mayo recipe on and get round to it …
