Honey-Lime Sweet Potatoes
- 6 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut crosswise into
slices 1/2 inch thick
- Melted unsalted butter for brushing, plus
2 Tbs. butter
- 1/2 cup honey, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Brush the potato slices with the melted butter.
Grill the potato slices over the hottest part of a charcoal fire or directly over the heat elements of a gas grill, turning once, until fork-tender, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over low heat, mix the honey and lime juice until smooth. Add the 2 Tbs. butter and stir until melted. Season with salt and pepper. Brush the sweet potatoes on both sides with the glaze and grill them briefly, turning once, about 30 seconds per side. Serve hot. Serves 6.
