Grilled Cilantro-Lime Sweet Potatoes

Another successful recipe from Pinterest that I made for the dinner party (with the help of my su-chef Allison) for the dinner party.  When I saw the recipe I thought they looked and sounded good... but I was actually surprised how much I loved them and everyone else loved them. They were a hit. SO good and I would for sure make them again. So simple too. Here's the recipe.

Grilled Cilantro-Lime Sweet Potatoes
3 sweet potatoes
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
2 tsp finely grated lime zest
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 cup canola oil {I used extra virgin olive oil}
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Place the potatoes in a large pot of boiling water and cook until fork tender.  Let cool, then slice each potato into eights lengthwise.
Preheat grill to medium heat. Mix 1 tablespoon salt, lime zest, and cayenne pepper in a bowl.
Brush the potatoes with oil and season with salt and pepper.
Place on the grill and grill on all sides until golden brown and cooked through {about 3-4 minutes each side including the skin.  You may need to cook shorter or longer on each side depending on your grill, but just make sure the potatoes are fully cooked through}.
Transfer to a plate or platter and sprinkle with lime-salt mixture and chopped cilantro.

Tracy, you were my cooking inspiration this week. I made these, too. We also enjoyed them! The kids thought they were a little spicy, but Carlyna and I loved them (and I don't even like sweet potatoes.)
