  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add potatoes for 2-3 minutes and then add shallots, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly brown.

  • Lift the edges and check that the tortilla is starting to set.

  • Using a large plate on top of skillet quickly invert tortilla onto plate, then slide back into skillet, cooked side up. Cook until center is just about to set. Cut into wedges and serve with fresh rosemary.
