There’s nothing like Long Island potatoes…and this recipe gives them a bit of tropical flair with pineapple, coconut, soy sauce and ginger. My family thinks they’re out of this world! The potatoes are a hit whenever I’ve served them—at barbecues, holidays and more—and I’ve often had requests for the recipe.

"I tried this recipe tonight to see if I liked it well enough to serve to my bunco group tomorrow night. I absolutely will! They are delicious and such a unique thing to serve with the coconut prawns I'm fixing."
