  1. Heat the barbecue until the coals are white hot. Place each potato on a double layer of foil. Prick the sweet potatoes with a fork, rub over a little olive oil, season and wrap each one securely in the foil.
  2. Nestle the potatoes directly into the coals and cook for 20-30 mins (depending on the size of the potatoes), turning halfway, until cooked through.
  3. Cut open each potato, spoon over a little cream cheese and scatter with a few capers and coriander leaves.
