"Sweet potatoes make a perfect summer treat, especially with a nice twist by using lime zest! Boiling the potatoes beforehand allows them to cook perfectly once in the oven. This pairs well with seafood and burgers alike."

  1. Place the sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Allow to cool, then slice each sweet potato into wedges. Arrange wedges on a baking sheet.
  2. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  3. Brush the sweet potato wedges with olive oil, and lightly season with salt and pepper. Combine sea salt, lime zest, chili powder, paprika, and crushed red pepper flakes in a small bowl.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on all sides, about 20 minutes. Plate and sprinkle with the seasoning mixture and cilantro immediately.

Fabulous flavor, though making sure they're only fork-tender is important! I used 1 tbsp table salt instead of kosher, and will decrease it to 2 tsp table salt next time.

followed directions exactly - make sure you use sea salt it really puts it over the edge. Big hit at our picnic. Shame on the reviewer who gave 1 star for something the submitter can't control.

I made these twice. As directed the first time and didn't care for the texture. Second time I cubed the potato, tossed them in the oil and seasonings, and oven roasted them. We normally like jus...

Can't wait to try these! You have no control over the nutrional info. How dare you be docked stars for that! Some people.....

Yum! Only change I made was to microwave the potato wedges in a bowl with a tiny bit of water for a couple minutes instead of boiling them. Very good. Thanks! :)

Wow, absolutley delicious! I mixed all of the spices except for the lime zest and cilantro in a big ziplock with the EVOO and tossed the potatoes in it before baking, then coated them with the z...
