This was the perfect marinade! I used 1/4 inch slices on an electric counter-top grill. After I grilled the sweet potatoes, I soaked some eggplant slices in the remaining marinade and grilled them, too! Thanks for sharing!
I love sweet potatoes, but usually dress them up with sweet toppings of melted butter and brown sugar. Marinating them in lemon juice with garlic was a new experience for me. I followed the blanching instructions exactly, but found that my 1/4" to 1/2" potato slices needed more time on the grill. The lemon is the dominate flavor for these potatoes. Hubby isn't a strong citrus fan and wavered a bit with these, but did clean his plate. Overall, these were a different side dish for a grilled meal. They have left me pondering other marinade combinations.
I made it exactly as stated. Great addition to grilled chicken or sandwiches. Served with a creamed horseradish sauce for dipping adds tang and creaminess.
I forgot to blanch mine first!! Ooops! So they took a little longer on the grill and they got black but that did not at all affect the taste. They were really good and I only dropped a few slices into the grill. Yummy.
This is great - used less olive oil and zapped them a few minutes in the microwave to precook them. Thanks Whipper! :)
Great last minute dish! Thanks for the recipe. If anyone knows how to make a dip for it please let me know...thanks!
