Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Wash and scrub the sweet potatoes to remove any dirt or debris. (I left the skin on; you can peel, if you prefer.)

Step 3

Cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise into 1/2-inch thick slices.

Step 4

In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, ground cumin, ground coriander, ground cinnamon, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well to form a flavorful marinade.

Step 5

Brush the marinade onto both sides of the sweet potato slices, ensuring they are well coated.

Step 6

Place the sweet potato slices directly on the grill grates. Cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until grill marks appear and the sweet potatoes are tender.

Step 7

Once the sweet potatoes are grilled to your liking, remove them from the grill and transfer to a serving platter.

Step 8

Sprinkle fresh cilantro over them sweet potatoes, if desired.

Step 9

Serve hot with lime wedges on the side, to squeeze over the sweet potatoes.
