Crisp Potatoes With A Garlic/Herb Oil

To really make this dish become the surprise hit at the dinner table, add some minced garlic.


  • 1  1/2 lbs. red skinned baby potatoes
  • sea salt
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped parsley (flat leaf is best)
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated

Heat the grill on medium high. Firstly, fill a pot with the potatoes and cold water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender (12-14 minutes). Drain and cool slightly.

Cut the potatoes in half and toss with 1 tbsp. olive oil , coating all the surfaces. Whisk together  the remaining oil and garlic. Grill the potatoes directly on the grates, turning to get grill marks on the potatoes,  cooking until they become crisp. (2-3 minutes in total).

Remove from the grill and toss with the remaining oil, minced garlic and adding the chopped parsley.

These are really a delightful ‘gift’ to the dinner. Enjoy!
