Grilled Yukon Gold Potatoes with Herbs & Minced ShallotJune 10, 2015
Mister Sive is the griller in the family. I am the lucky eater of said grilling. This post is for all you grillers. Or for those of you like me, pass it on to your favorite grill person and then make sure you are first in line to try these. You will not be sorry. Below is my observation of what my husband put together. Again, I am the observer in this one, but the very happy diner once all is said and done.
Thinly slice Yukon gold potatoes. Put in a bowl. Add a healthy glug of extra virgin olive oil. Mix around with your hands or a spoon so all the potatoes are evenly coated with the oil. If they seem a little dry, add more. Super important that these be well well oiled. Then add a good dose of salt & pepper. Next finely chop a shallot or two, depending on the size of the shallot and how many potatoes you are cooking. Gently mix those in. Yummy already. Now finely chop fresh thyme and oregano. Gently mix those in. You will need a cast iron skillet or some skillet you feel can handle the heat of your grill. Add a small coating of oil to the skillet. Add the potatoes. Staying with these all along, turning the potatoes as they cook. They will start to brown and caramelize a bit. The herbs and the shallot will infuse them. Keep moving them around until they are your desired amount of done. He served them with steaks, but these would be awesome with just about anything. Fish, chicken, served with a cocktail before dinner or just by themselves for a snack.
