“I'm posting this per a request of a friend. I have not tried it yet but have every intention of doing so. This is a very unique dish and can also be finished on a gas or charcoal grill. My broiling time is only approximate so keep a close eye on these potatoes under the broiler! The original recipe came from a local promotional cookbook out of Mobile, Alabama.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the potatoes into 3/4" thick slices.
  2. In a large saucepan, bring the water to a boil and then add the potatoes -- when they begin to re-boil, allow them to go for 6 minutes, uncovered, (they should be just tender) and then drain them with a colander.
  3. Mix the lime juice, honey and tequila together in a small bowl.
  4. Set up a large baking sheet on which there is a metal grill-type rack. Lay the potatoes out on the rack and brush them with the lime-honey-tequila sauce.
  5. Broil the potatoes until they brown on one side, flip them and when they brown on the second side, they're done.
  6. NOTE: A second option is to grill the brushed potatoes on a gas or charcoal grill.
