Smoky new potatoes

Cook potatoes on the barbecue for a smoky flavour. Keep whole, or cut them in half, or into thick slices if you want them more coated in the paprika butter

  • 800g new potatoes, halved
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 25g butter
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed


  1. Tip the potatoes into a large pan of salted water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5-8 mins until just cooked through, then drain. Return to the pan.

  2. While the potatoes are still steaming, toss in the paprika, butter, crushed garlic and a large pinch of salt, then serve. Or, for added smokiness, tip the potatoes onto a large piece of foil or into a flameproof pan. Scrunch the foil to create a parcel that’s open at the top, then sit it on the side of the barbecue in indirect heat so the potatoes sizzle in the butter. If the barbecue has a lid, close it and cook the potatoes for 15-20 mins until starting to turn golden (this adds smoky flavour – don’t worry, the potatoes will not overcook), then serve from the parcel or pan.
