Dill Potatoes Grilled in a Packet
These garlic butter and dill flavored potatoes are grilled in a foil packet, making for a simple recipe that is a great alternative to potato salad.
- Serves: 6 persons
- 6to 8 large new potatoes
- ¼cup olive oil
- 2cloves garlic (minced)
- 2to 3 tablespoons fresh dill (finely chopped)
- 2tablespoons butter (melted)
- 1 ½teaspoons sea salt
- 1teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Wash potatoes, dry well, and cut into quarters. Place potato pieces in a resealable container or a zip-top bag.
Step 3Mix together olive oil, minced garlic, chopped dill, melted butter, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Pour over potatoes, seal the container, and let marinate for 30 minutes.
Step 4Preheat grill to medium heat. Using a slotted spoon, remove potatoes from container and place on a long sheet of aluminum foil. Pour enough of the marinade over potatoes to coat them well, but make sure they are not "swimming" in it.
Step 5Place another piece of foil on top and crimp the edges together to create a packet. Make 3 small holes on the top of the packet to allow steam to escape while cooking.
Step 6Place potato packet on the grill and cook for 30 to 40 minutes, or until tender.
Step 7Remove packet from grill and let sit for about 5 minutes. Using heat-resistant gloves, carefully unfold aluminum foil, being mindful hot steam will escape. Transfer potatoes to a platter and serve.
