Grilled Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Grilled Sweet Potatoes make for a fantastically easy grilled side. Or if you're vegetarian, they can be your main!


  • 4 sweet potatoes, scrubbed but not peeled
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest, (the zest of one whole lime)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • fresh lime juice, from one whole lime
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro


  1. Boil the potatoes until they are fork-tender, approximately 25 minutes.
  2. Remove the potatoes from water and allow them to cool slightly.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the kosher salt, lime zest, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl.  Mix well.  Set aside.
  4. Once the potatoes are cool enough to cut, slice into 6 wedges per potato.  (Anything smaller will burn too fast on the grill!)
  5. 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.
  6. Remove wedges from the grill, sprinkle lightly with lime juice, kosher salt mixture, and chopped cilantro.
