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. 
Outstandong moving presentation!<br><br>How did ya do that animated photo?
Thank you for the comment. The moving image is called an animated GIF. It is like a cross between a photo and video. They are easy to make with a smart phone, just search for animated GIF on your app store and should see several. The one I am currently using isn't recommendable. You can also make them from you computer, a free software i downloaded is called LiceCap (limited options but works well).
I tried these and they turned out amazing and they are quick to. Definitely going to become a common recipe in my house now
Great! let me know if you come up with some tasty seasoning combos.
Cool, thanks
Ooh, awesome! These look like they would go well with my bbq courgette recipe.
Thanks, your courgettes look delish!
That sounds like an awesome and easy way to grill potatoes! I have to try this!
Thanks, let me know how they turn out! Even my little ones love them, and they eat the peel (doused in ketchup of course).
