COMPLEXITY

Simple

PREPARATION TIME

5 minutes

COOKING TIME

15 minutes

SERVES

Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 500g small New/Baby potatoes, boiled in their skins until just soft
  • Fresh bay leaves

Method

1
Ideal for gentle barbecue cooking, but if the weather lets you down you can roast them in the oven on a non-stick tray at 180°C / Fan 160°C / Gas 4 for around 15 minutes.
2
Take a metal skewer and thread alternatively onto the skewer the bay leaves and potatoes, using 5-6 potatoes per skewer.
3
To make the marinade mix all the ingredients together, then using a pastry brush paint the marinade all over the potatoes.
4
These kebabs can then be cooked, once the fierce heat has died down towards the end of the cooking, on the coolest part of the barbeque. Help them cook evenly by occasionally turning them and brushing the remaining marinade on the potatoes. Continue until they are caramelized and slightly crunchy on the outside.
5
Tip: When brushing the marinade over the potatoes balance each end of the metal skewer over a bowl to make it easier. These kebabs are lovely with barbequed meats, game or seafood or delicious on their own.
