  • 2 Alsum yellow potatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Smoked paprika
  • ¼ Teaspoon Garlic powder
  • ¼ Teaspoon Sea salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Finely chopped fresh parsley


  • Preheat grill to 400°F.
  • Wash potatoes (leaving skin on) and place metal skewer through the center of each.
  • Using a small, sharp knife, make a cut at one end of the potato until you hit the skewer. Then hold the knife at a slight angle and slowly turn the potato to make one continuous cut down the length of the potato. This will create a spiral effect. Note: Aim to make each turn about ¼-inch thick.
  • Gently loosen up and fan out the potato into a longer spiral on the skewer. Brush the outside & inside of the spirals with olive oil.
  • Mix together the paprika, garlic powder, and salt and sprinkle on the potatoes.
  • Grill (with cover closed) for 30 minutes, turning every few minutes.
  • Drizzle with any remaining oil and sprinkle with parsley.


For the Air Fryer: 400°F for 20 minutes, or until tender & golden.
