grilled sweet potatoes w/ cilantro & lime

sweet potatoes are a staple in my diet.
at this point it's surprising that i haven't turned a lovely shade of orange yet.  yet.  there's always tomorrow.

so with summer in full force and the bbq constantly fired up, i decided yesterday was the perfect day to throw them on the grill and give them a summer makeover, finished off with some fresh lime and cilantro for good measure.

Grilled Sweet Potatoes w/ Cilantro & Lime Zest

4 sweet potatoes or yams
sea salt & pepper
cayenne pepper
zest & juice of one lime
1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped

cook sweet potatoes in microwave until fork tender.
halve each potato and then quarter each half.
in small bowl combine 1/2 tablespoon sea salt, lime zest, cayenne pepper and pepper to taste.
place potatoes on lightly oiled bbq grill over medium heat.  cook for 2 minutes per side, or until nice grill marks appear.
remove from heat and sprinkle with zest mixture.  squeeze lime juice over top and finish with cilantro. serve.
