Are you still garnishing your deluxe grilled meats with boring old baked potatoes? Add a little zing to your grilled spuds with this Japanese themed recipe. This recipe is quick (30 minutes), easy and very flexible. I originally picked up this recipe online and have been refining it for years. It is similar in many ways to this instructable
Step 1: Ingredients
The only two ingredients that are essential are potatoes and mayo; everything else is negotiable. If you want to substitute the soy sauce, then you'll want to add some salt.
1. 4 potatoes (long white in this case).
2. 1/2 cup of mayonaise (lowfat would defeat the purpose...)
3. 2 tablespoons of soy sauce (Japsnese brands are worth the extra cost)
4. 1 teaspoon of sesame oil
5. 1 teaspoon of wasabi (less if you're not sure what you're getting into)
6. 1 teaspoon of hot sauce (Sriracha in this case)
Most of these ingredients have a VERY strong taste. If you test the flavor before cooking, you may find it too punchy; but don't worry, the grilling brings it down a notch.
Step 2: Prepping Potatoes
Scrub your potatoes under running water and cut out any gnarly bits. Stab each potato with a fork about four times and stick them on a microwave-safe plate. Stick the plate in the microwave for about one minute per potato plus two minute: in this case 4 + 2 = 6 minutes. Cooking times will vary depending on the wattage of you microwave and the size of the potatoes. The goal is NOT to cook the potato thoroughly, but to soften it a bit.
Pull the potatoes out and let them cool while you light your BBQ and prepare the sauce.
