1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened

1 to 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh tarragon 

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

2 pounds new potatoes, preferably a mix of colors, cut in half 

2 tablespoons olive oil 


  1. Preheat a grill to medium high.
  2. Mix the butter, tarragon, lemon zest, a large pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper together in a small bowl.
  3. In a resealable plastic bag, toss the new potatoes with the olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Add the potatoes to the grill and cook, turning once or twice, until well-marked and tender, about 10 minutes.
  4. Serve the potatoes hot, topped with a generous spoonful of tarragon butter (remaining butter can be refrigerated up to 1 week).
