Cook's Notes

Boiling potatoes: Cover potatoes with cold, salted water in a pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until just tender; drain. Halve (or cut into wedges), and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with spice mix, or season with salt and pepper. Toss well. Thread onto skewers. Grill potatoes, cut sides down, over medium-high heat, turning once, until marked and tender, about 10 minutes total.
