For the spicy tomato aioli

2 plum (roma) tomatoes, about 125g total
60ml cup olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
250ml prepared mayonnaise
5g garlic, chopped
2 tsp spanish paprika
2 tsp. pureed chipotle chili peppers in adobo
2 tbsp. fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
5 large red or yellow potatoes, scrubbed (about 1 1/2 kg)
Salt, as needed
For the spicy tomato aioli:

1) Heat the griddle to high. Brush the tomatoes with the some of the oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the tomatoes on the griddle and cook until charred on all sides and soft, about 10 minutes. Remove from the griddle when charred.

2) Place the tomatoes, mayonnaise, garlic, paprika and chipotle in a food processor and process until smooth, season with salt and pepper. Can be made 1 day in advance and refrigerated.

For the potatoes:

1) While griddling the tomatoes, place the potatoes in a large pot of cold water, add 2 tbsp. of salt and cook until potatoes are tender, but still firm, about 12 to 15 minutes. Drain, let cool and cut each potato into 3/4-inch thick slices.

2) Brush the potato slices on both sides with some of the oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the potatoes on the griddle, close the cover and griddle until lightly golden brown and just cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Carefully transfer the potatoes to a platter and garnish with the parsley. Serve the aioli drizzled over the potatoes or on the side.
