Rustic Grilled Home Fries

“This was created by my dad and I when we discovered fingerling potatoes in the grocery store. We cut them with a fancy cutter to make the ridged edges but you can just use a regular old knife. Very simple and easy and taste better than deep fried fatty french fries you get in the pub-without the guilt! excellent served alongside fish. You can add more spices if you like-but the basic salt and pepper allows the lovely flavour of the potatoes to shine through.”
