Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Lime Cilantro Vinaigrette

Submitted by: BUN3KIN

Introduction

I know it looks like a long cooking time, but 25 of those minutes are boiling the potatoes. This recipe is so good, you won't mind at all! I know it looks like a long cooking time, but 25 of those minutes are boiling the potatoes. This recipe is so good, you won't mind at all!

Ingredients

    4 lb sweet potatoes (8; preferably long)
    1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    1/2 cup olive oil
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

Cover potatoes with cold salted water in a large pot, then bring to a boil. Simmer until slightly resistant in center when pierced with a sharp small knife, 25 to 30 minutes, then transfer to a large bowl of cold water to stop cooking. Drain well. When cool enough to handle, peel potatoes with a sharp small knife and quarter lengthwise.


Prepare grill for cooking.


Whisk together lime juice, salt, and pepper and add oil in a slow stream, whisking. Whisk in cilantro.


When fire is hot (you can hold your hand 5 inches above rack for 1 to 2 seconds), grill potatoes in 2 or 3 batches on lightly oiled grill rack (over coals if using a charcoal grill), uncovered, turning, until grill marks appear and potatoes are just tender, 3 to 6 minutes total.


Serve potatoes warm or at room temperature, drizzled with vinaigrette.

  • Very good....Loved this and will try it again! - 4/24/10

  • The "dressing" is really tasty. Don't make the same mistake I did, though, and over-boil the sweet potatoes. I ended up with mashed sweet potatoes with the dressing as a cold "gravy" instead of nice sweet potato spears. I'll be trying this again, maybe only boiling for 15 minutes and then grilling. - 5/11/09
