Recipe Type: sweet potato, deep fry, garnish, dinner party, gourmet

Prep Time:15 min
Total Time:15 min


1 small sweet potato, peeled
olive oil for deep frying


Preheat olive oil in a heavy deep saucepan to 350 degrees F.

Using a mandoline with a fine-toothed blade in place, slice potato into long thin shoestring julienne strips.

Separate the strips, add a small amount to the oil. The oil will bubble up and increase, use extreme caution, do not put in large amounts of potatoes all at once. Move potatoes around in oil with a long tined fork until they turn golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon to drain on paper towels; sprinkle with salt immediately and serve on top first course entrees or main dishes.

They can be made 1 day ahead and carefully covered at room temperature, they are very fragile. I served this beautiful garnish on top my scalloped potatoes recipe.

Wine recommendation: Pinot Gris; Chardonnay
