Cooking time: 25-minutes | Difficulty: Super Easy


6 medium roasting potatoes, thickly sliced
Bulb of garlic
2 small rosemary twigs
Large pan of cold salted water
6 dessert spoons of duck fat
Maldon Sea Salt Flakes to taste


1. Boil the potatoes until tender in salted water. Next, drain off the water into a colander in the sink.

2. Set the potatoes aside to help them dry out. Meanwhile, put the hot plate on a low heat to warm up. Close the lid to the barbeque to help speed up the warming process.

3. Once the potatoes are dry and the flat plate is hot, simply drizzle a spoonful of duck fat on the flat plate then place the potato scallops face down on the flat plate. Drizzle with another spoon of duck fat and sprinkle with crushed garlic bulb, rosemary and sea salt.

4. Cook until deep golden brown on both sides. If needed, occasionally drizzle with more duck fat.

5. Once super crispy, remove from the barbeque and serve on a warm platter with a side of steak or Saltimbocca King Prawns.
