Grilled Sweet Potato Fries

Regarding BBQ Inc.
Save the oil for something else because these Sweet Potatoes get fried on the grill. The only oil you need is about 1/4 cup to get them crispy. While they grill they get brushed with a salt and lime vinaigrette that adds all the flavor these need to be great.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 8 to 10 as a side dish


  • 6 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons salt (coarse salt works best)
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cumin


Heat a large pot of water to a boil. While it is heating, cut off the pointy ends of the sweet potatoes. Then cut in half lengthwise and each half into three or four wedges, depending on the size. Drop the wedges into the boiling water and let cook for about 5 minutes, while you light the grill. Remove sweet potato wedges from the water and place on a couple of paper towels on a large plate and allow to dry. Mix together other ingredients. When the grill is heated to a medium hot temperature place the wedges on the grill. Immediately start brushing lime-oil mixture on the potatoes, turning them over until they are all coated in oil and have good grill marks. Reduce temperature, or move to a cooler part of the grill and continue grilling until done. Sweet potato fries should be soft through the middle, but firm enough to hold together.

Pretty good, we liked them, Member dixonmeister

Just a couple of comments: - even cutting the potatoes thin, I boil them for more than the 5 minutes. - I don't get any lime taste at all.
