Lemon Zesty Grilled Potatoes

Adapted from Canadian Living: The Barbecue Collection
Printable Recipe

Hands-on time: 5 minutes
Par-boiling time: 10-15 minutes (depending on the size of the potatos)
Grilling time: 5 minutes on a hot grill (or sauteed over high heat on top of stove)
Serves 4

2lb/1kg baby new potatoes, scrubbed but not peeled
2-3 tbsp olive oil
Grated zest of 1 lemon
Kosher salt & freshly ground pepper to taste

1. Boil potatoes in salted water until tip of knife makes it almost to the center of the potato before meeting resistance.   Drain and pat dry.

2. In a bowl, whisk the olive oil, lemon zest, salt & pepper. Add the drained potatoes and toss to coat well.

3. Use a BBQ vegetable basket (has holes so vegetables can char a bit without falling through the BBQ grate)

4. Grill over medium high heat until the potatoes are golden and tender.  If you don't have a BBQ you can saute in a skillet over high heat until the potatoes are done.
