Grilled Cilantro & Lime Sweet Potatoes

Grilled Cilantro-Lime Sweet Potatoes

We eat a pounds of sweet potatoes every week, and when it is nice out it is great to fire up the grill. This combines the things we love most, plus cilantro.


  • 3 sweet potatoes
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tsp finely grated lime zest
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (depending on level of spiciness)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro


  1. Slice each potato into large fries and boil in water until fork tender. Let cool.
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  3. Mix 1 tablespoon salt, lime zest, olive oil and cayenne pepper in a bowl.
  4. Brush the potatoes with mixture and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Place on the grill and grill on all sides until golden brown and cooked through with nice grill marks.
  6. Transfer to a plate or platter and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
