Here's a Grilled Lemon Potatoes recipe that's to die for; just do yourself a favor and use some quality taters.

Grilled Lemon Potatoes

2 pounds Fingerling or Yukon Gold potatoes, halved
1⁄3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 lemons, zest of both, juice of 1
1 teaspoon sugar
Coarse sea salt
Freshly ground pepper 

Parboil potatoes in salted water for 5 minutes; drain, then transfer to large bowl.

In small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon zest and juice, sugar, salt, and pepper; pour over potatoes. Toss to coat evenly.

Using two sheets aluminum foil, create cooking tray for potatoes. Lay one sheet on top of the other and fold sides up. Put empty tray on grill and pour in coated potatoes. Cover grill.

Grill over medium-hot coals for 30 to 40 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. Remove from grill and serve immediately. Yields 4 to 6 servings.
