Smoky on the outside but sweet and tender on the inside! Food Fanatic‘s wonderful wedges of grilled sweet potatoes is a good accompaniment to any meal. The cilantro lime dressing adds depth and dimension to this sweet potato dish. We bet you can’t eat just one!

Ingredients for servings


  • 4 medium sweet potatoes scrubbed but not peeled

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 tablespoon lime zest (the zest of one whole lime)

  • 0.125 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 whole lime juiced

  • 0.33 cup fresh cilantro


  • Boil the potatoes until they are fork-tender, approximately 25 minutes. Remove the potatoes from water and allow them to cool slightly.

  • Meanwhile, combine the kosher salt, lime zest, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Mix well. Set aside. Once the potatoes are cool enough to cut, slice into 6 wedges per potato. (Anything smaller will burn too fast on the grill!)

  • Brush the potato wedges with vegetable oil and place on the grill. Grill until golden in color, about 4-5 minutes. Flip the wedges, and grill for another 4-5 minutes.

  • Remove wedges from the grill, sprinkle lightly with lime juice, kosher salt mixture, and chopped cilantro.
