A delicious and unusual way to serve boring old sweet potatoes. A taste of the islands!

Loved this completely. Used red onions, fresh pineapple and a little more rosemary but otherwise as is. Combination is amazing, fresh and tangy. Great on its own but also served it in jerk chicken wraps with fresh salsa. Whole family loved it. I kept it in oven a little longer to get a few charred edges letting the pineapple and onion caramelise a little which I thought was a nice touch. Will definitely make again.

This was DELICIOUS! Wouldn't change a thing! It was just what I was looking for for my caribbean-themed fish dinner. Took me right back to the islands.

I loved this! I used a 20 ounce can of diced pineapple because I didn't have fresh available. I also used a red onion. The combination was wonderful! I love the sweetness of the pineapple with the sweet potato.
