Never thought of grilling sweet potatoes, but that is the comment I got from everyone at my brother's birthday gathering. Everyone loved the potatoes. They are so delicious.
Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Lime and Cilantro
Yield: 4 servings
- 3 sweet potatoes, unpeeled
- Kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest
- Pinch of cayenne pepper
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- Freshly ground pepper
- 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
Parcook the potatoes: Place in a pot of water and boil until fork-tender; let cool. Slice each potato lengthwise into eighths.
Preheat a grill to medium or place a cast-iron grill pan over medium heat. Mix 1 tablespoon salt, the lime zest and cayenne in a small bowl.
Brush the potato wedges with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until golden brown on all sides (including the skin) and just cooked through, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter; immediately season with the salt mixture and sprinkle with cilantro.
