Last week, I visited the beautiful island of Tenerife. My good friend Mark from Fountainfotos (check here his Instagram, he is so talented), asked me whether I fancied helping him with a little promotional video for an amazing hotel called Pearly Grey. Within seconds I said yes, not only because it meant visiting the largest of the seven Canary Islands, but so that I could also research the island to share with you how to eat clean and healthy in Tenerife.
While there I also filmed a quick recipe for you with Pearly Grey’s chef Darrell, to recreate Tenerife’s famous traditional salty potatoes. They are called Papas Arrugadas, also known as wrinkly potatoes! They are boiled in salty water (sea water is the best), and then served with two sauces; red mojo is hot and spicy and mojo verde is milder with parsley and coriander. It is a very simple but tasty recipe and the video will be shortly on my Facebook page. It is delicious on its own but also as a side dish, and definitively worth trying.
