New potatoes grilled in a foil pouch equal an easy summer side with no clean-up required.


  • 1 ½ pounds new potatoes, halved

  • 4 garlic cloves, skin on

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves

  • Lime wedges, for serving


  1. Place potatoes and garlic on a large double layer of foil, drizzle with oil, and season with salt and pepper. Fold foil around potatoes and crimp edges to form a packet. Grill directly over heat source, rotating packet often, until potatoes are tender, 20 to 25 minutes. (To keep warm, move packet to cooler side of grill.)

  2. Transfer potatoes to a serving bowl. Toss with cilantro and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with lime wedges.
