Heat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-assisted/Gas Mark 7. Prick the potatoes with a fork, place on a plate and microwave on high (900W) for 6 and a half minutes. Turn the potatoes over and microwave for a further three and a half. Transfer the potatoes to a baking sheet and brush with the oil. Season and place on the top shelf of the oven for 20 minutes until the skin is crisp and the flesh is soft. Reduce the temperature to 200°C/180°C fan-assisted/Gas Mark 6 if the potato browns too quickly.
Meanwhile place the spring onion, cucumber, carrot, radish, coriander and sesame oil in a bowl. Lightly season and toss to coat.
Remove the potatoes from the oven, make a cross in each potato and split open slightly. Spoon over the Asian slaw and serve immediately.
