Preheat outdoor grill to medium-high. Tear off a 20-inch-long piece of heavy duty aluminum foil; coat with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine potatoes, oil, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper; toss until well-mixed and coated. Spread down center of foil, leaving enough room along edges to form a packet. Bring short ends of foil together and fold over twice to form a seal; fold in sides to form a seal, making sure to leave room for steam.
Grill packet, carefully turning a few times, until potatoes are tender, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from grill; open packet (be careful of steam) and transfer potatoes to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and additional black pepper, if desired; toss and garnish with fresh herbs. Yields about 6 potatoes per serving.
Notes: Small new potatoes can be used instead of fingerlings. If you cannot find really small ones, halve or quarter larger ones.
