Sweets on the Grill

By Marcus | In Recipes | on January 26, 2012

Last night, Mike caught me eating a sweet potato post-workout and asked if I did anything to “spice” it up. I sadly admitted that it was just baked in the oven until it caramelized but was otherwise plain. He then asked if I ever tried putting them on the grill, which reminded me of this recipe. You see, I haven’t had the chance to make these in a while since I can’t have a grill at my current apartment building, but they are quite tasty.

Spiced Grilled Sweet Potatoes


  • 3 lbs of sweet potatoes, washed and peeled
  • 1 teaspoon course sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


Cover potatoes with cold salted water in a large pot, then bring to a boil. Simmer until slightly resistant when pierced with a sharp small knife, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain well. When cool, slice potatoes lengthwise.

Mix together salt and spice; coat potatoes in oil. Sprinkle spice mixture on sweet potatoes, coating thoroughly.

Grill potatoes on a lightly oiled grill rack over medium heat, until grill marks appear and potatoes are cooked through, about 15 minutes.

While it’s pretty easy to cut these in thick slices, I also sometimes prefer to cut them again lengthwise to make fat “steak fries” out of them. If you’re fortunate enough to have a grill, give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!
