  • 4 red potatoes medium sized, or any potatoes of your choosing
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons salt
  • ¾ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • minced parsley and fresh lemon optional garnish


  • Preheat the grill to medium high heat (350-400 degrees Fahrenheit) and bring a large pot of salted water to a boil on the stove.
  • While heating the water, cut the potatoes into ¼ inch slices. Use a mandoline if you have one.
  • Add the potatoes to the boiling water and cook for 5-6 minutes or until almost al dente. They should not be fully cooked as they will finish cooking on the grill and if they are overcooked they will fall apart while being handled.
  • Remove the potato slices from the boiling water and pat dry with a paper towel. Set aside while you make the seasoning mixture.
  • Whisk the melted salted butter, lemon juice, salt, Italian seasoning, and paprika together in a large bowl.
  • Add the potato slices to the bowl and gently toss until coated.
  • Place on the heated grill and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until they start to turn golden brown and are fork tender. Use tongs to flip the potatoes over.
  • Plate with minced parsley and a splash of fresh lemon, optional. Best when served straight off the grill.


  • I made a very simple dip of mayo and sriracha for an easy spicy dip. 
  • If you do not have a grill, you can bake your potatoes at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and fork tender or cook on a grill pan
