Barbecued New Potato Skewers
Recipe type: Vegetables
Total time: 
Fresh new potatoes shine in this simple, buttery recipe.
  • Small new potatoes, scrubbed clean
  • Butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • Herbs/seasonings of your choice
  1. Clean potatoes and put in a saucepan. Cover with water, bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and boil gently until tender and easy to stab with a fork, 10-12 minutes.
  2. Drain water and toss potatoes with a generous amount of butter (they should look very shiny), salt and pepper, and your favourite herbs or spice mix. I love chives and garlic, or rosemary and thyme.
  3. Thread onto skewers and place on heated BBQ for 5-8 minutes, turning once, till skins are crisp. (Make ahead: up to 1 day in advance, boil and season potatoes, thread onto skewers and place, covered, in the fridge until you need them. Barbecue until heated through).
If using wooden skewers, soak them in water while you prep and boil the potatoes so they don't catch fire on the barbecue.
