  • Large microwave-safe bowl
  • Metal or wooden skewers


  • 24 Little Potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp parsley, chopped

    Place little potatoes in a large, microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for five minutes, or until potatoes are almost cooked through (3 to 4 minutes for smaller potatoes).

  • Step 2

    Toss potatoes with oil, salt and pepper. Set aside to let potatoes cool enough to handle while you preheat the barbecue to medium-high heat.

  • Step 3

    Skewer potatoes (be sure to use metal skewers or wooden skewers that have been soaked first) and grill for 2 to 3 minutes each side, until cooked through.

  • Step 4

    Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
