Grilled New Potatoes and Onions

I admit that I'm not a huge potato fan.  I mean, they're fine--I eat them.  They're just not one of my favorites.

Now, when you can get fresh, small new potatoes--red- or otherwise skinned--that's a different story.  They're so creamy and buttery when they're young like that, you can't help by like them.

Here's an easy way to make some new potatoes while you have the grill heated up.  The recipe calls for parboiling them, but to speed things up a little bit, I've microwaved them (on high for 3 minutes and then 1 minute intervals after that until softened). 

Grilled New Potatoes and Onions adapted from Hot and Sticky BBQ by Ted Reader
Serves 6-8

1 lb new potatoes
1 lb sweet onions
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup olive oil
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
1 tsp cracked black pepper
Salt to taste

1.      Boil potatoes in a large pot of salted water for 10-12 min or until just tender.  Drain, cool under cold water and pat dry.  Cut in half.

2.      Slice onions into ½” slices.

3.      Preheat grill to medium-high.

4.      In a large bowl, toss together, potato halves, onion slices, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, rosemary, pepper and salt.  Let sit for about 5 minutes.

5.      Grill potatoes and onions 10-12 minutes or until hot and slightly charred.

6.      Chop into bite-sized pieces and dress with marinade before serving.
