I used lemon because I didn’t have lime the first time I made these. The second time I used lime juice with lime zest. I’d say the lemon juice (without zest) was much better! I really liked this recipe, thanks!
I love a great simple dish and this one checks off the boxes. My husband accidentally bought lime juice in a bottle instead of fresh limes and I only had dried cilantro, so I substituted these ingredients. Otherwise I followed the directions and it was delicious! This recipe is a keeper, thanks.
I wonder how this would turn out if I didn’t peel the sweet potatoes.
Hi Wendi, I’m so glad you liked the recipe! Regarding leaving the peels on, I think they might separate as the sweet potatoes cook. But I haven’t tried it, so if you do, please let us know how it turns out!
Simply Delish. Followed recipe as is using a mandolin to slice the potato. Husband isn’t the greatest fan of sweet potatoes but liked these and said he would enjoy again. A fun twist on a simple side.
Great summertime dish to keep from cooking in the kitchen
Awesome!! Husband loved them too! Thanks for the recipe! I put the sauce on before and after I took them off the grill.
These were so delicious! Parcooked them by boiling beforehand because I’ve had bad luck with undercooked sweet potato but the grill finished them off perfectly. Also, I highly recommend basting with cilantro-lime-oil mixture before AND after grilling. Absolutely divine!
Needed the oven for another dish, so this was my first attempt of grilling sweet potatoes. I used fresh parsley instead of cilantro, and “basted” the sauce on after the potatoes were cooked and returned them to the grill for a short period to caramelize the coating. Very pleasing appearance with the grill marks and fresh herbs.
I made these for the first time tonight and I loved them! I let them cook a little bit too long so will watch that the next time but they were still good. I see making these often this summer when I have no desire to use the over and heat up the house!
I made these for Easter dinner this year they were a huge hit! Even my husband said, “I don’t normally like sweet potatoes, but I can’t stop eating these!” Thanks for the great recipe!
Wow!! This was melt in your mouth amazing!!
Hi please tell me if I could use the grill function in my toaster oven to make this thank you very much I don’t have an outside grill or any other kind of Grill except the oven or my toaster oven and I prefer to use the toaster oven if possible
Hi Constance, I haven’t tried making this with the grill function of a toaster oven, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. Easy enough to try!
My husband said “the best sweet potato dish ever”!
I was always told by my mum you don’t ever need to salt sweet potato. There is enough natural salts in it. However, she was talking about Kumera which I believe to be the mother of all sweet potato. I’ve always stuck by this. Do we really need to salt absolutely everything we cook?
Hi Mark, salt helps bring out the flavor in foods. Some foods need more added salt than others, like regular potatoes. Some less, like Swiss Chard. Also our bodies require salt to live. Unless you are on a special low salt diet for medical reasons, if you cook from scratch there is no reason to avoid salt.
Can this be made in the oven, how much time, temp, etc….Thanks!
Very creative. Tried with charcoal grilled sweet potatoes. Simply delicious
I might try French fried sweet potatoes. For “normal” French fries I would just do salt but maybe a little brown sugar and butter is in order here?
The trick will be getting crispy crunchy browned sweet potatoes.
I also like just frying the potato peelings for regular French fries. Will need to try that for the sweets.
Cumin, pinch cayenne ,lime juice and cilantro, yum!
I added a pinch of chilli flakes and it really kicked them up a notch.
I grill vegetables quite often and sweet potatoes are super delicious done in this way. I love this photo it makes me really hungry!
Delicious!!! Thank you :)
