Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Wash the potatoes well, because you are not going to peel them. Cut the potatoes into pieces, you can cut them into wedges or cubes - whichever you prefer.
Spread out the potatoes on a large baking dish or baking tray lined with baking parchment. Mix a teaspoon of smoked paprika with the chopped potato, along with a good glug of olive oil.
Season the potatoes with salt and pepper and bake until golden brown (around 20 minutes). Turn them over once during baking. The exact baking time depends on the size of the potato pieces.
Meanwhile, make the aioli dipping sauce (you can also use ready-made aioli).
Transfer the golden brown potatoes to small bowls and serve with the aioli and other tapas dishes. Enjoy your meal!
