How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare a charcoal fire to medium-high. Let flames subside. Wrap potatoes in a double layer of foil. Nestle potatoes down into coals using tongs. Place a few coals on top. Roast potatoes 45 minutes or until very tender; remove from coals. Let stand 15 minutes.

Step 2

Unwrap potatoes; cut into large wedges. Place on a large platter. Spoon sour cream over the top. Drizzle with oil and lime juice, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with pomegranate, cilantro, watercress, and olives. Serve with lime wedges.
