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

Top Review by David S.

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.
