There’s a local deli that serves the best sweet potato fries – EVER! I am not familiar with that particular tuber, so I never attempted it at home. Then, I saw the picture in this post and I just had to try it. I bought my first sweet potato and away we go.
After turning. They seem to be missing the brownish niceness. Not sure what happened. I actually ended up leaving them in for 10 instead of the 5 the recipe said. I topped them with some kosher salt to try and replicate the deli fries as close as possible.
I paired it with some frozen shrimp and clams. Yea, I know the clams were a gamble, but for some reason, they really sounded good (hangover). I used some homemade sweet chili sauce for dipping the shrimp (coming in another post). Ah – so satisfying. They aren’t in the picture because I got hungry 😐
Unfortunately, that’s the only thing that was good. The cornstarch was just bad. It stuck in my teeth and overwhelmed the fries. I didn’t even finish them and I eat burnt fries. I don’t think this experience will stop me from trying them again, but I think I am just going to go the regular route of tossing them just in olive oil.
