  • 4 medium sweet potatoes peeled and cut into 6-8 wedges each
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 small bunch cilantro with stems
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 1 scallion white and light green part only, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 serrano pepper or jalapeno, seeded if desired, sliced
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • ½ cup roasted cashews finely chopped


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Toss the potato wedges with 2 tablespoons oil and season with salt and black pepper. Place on a cast iron baking pan or a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or parchment.
  • Roast for 20 minutes. Flip the potatoes and roast another 20 minutes or until cooked through and lightly browned.
  • While the potatoes are roasting, combine the remaining olive oil, cilantro, lime juice, scallion, garlic, serrano (or jalapeno) pepper and fish sauce in a food processor. Process until finely chopped.
  • Transfer to a mixing bowl and stir in the chopped cashews.
  • Serve the sauce with the potato wedges.


MAKE AHEAD:  Be careful to not overcook or overly brown the sweet potatoes when roasting the first time. To reheat, place on a baking sheet and reheat at 350 degrees.
When roasting any type of potato wedge, don’t crowd the potatoes. If crowded, they steam instead. Make sure one of the cut sides is touching the foil.
To speed up the roasting process, cut the sweet potatoes into cubes and toss them with a spatula or large spoon.
