- Meanwhile, prick potatoes all over with a fork and place on a plate lined with paper towel. Sprinkle with a little water. Microwave potatoes on High (100%) for 4–5 minutes or until just tender. Thickly slice and lightly spray with oil.
- Preheat a chargrill or barbecue over medium-high heat. Lightly spray asparagus and capsicum with oil. Cook asparagus, capsicum and potato slices, turning occasionally, for 6–8 minutes or until lightly charred and tender. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
