  • Candy / Deep Fryer Thermometer

For the Sweet Potato Fries

  • 1 Large Sweet Potato peeled and spiral sliced
  • 4 Cups Olive Oil or other frying oil of your choice
  • Kosher Salt To season after frying

For the Lemon Garlic Aioli

  • 1 Cup Olive Oil Mayo

  • 2 TBSP Lemon Juice
  • 1 TBSP Lemon Zest
  • 1 TBSP Fresh Parsley chopped fine
  • 1 Pinch Kosher Salt

  • Add the oil to the high sided pot, ensuring the oil does not go more than 1/3 of the way up the pot wall. Heat over medium-high heat to 375 degrees. Once it has reached 375 degrees, increase the heat to high.

  • Cook for 1 minute 25 seconds and then remove from the oil. Place on a paper towel lined or racked rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt.
  • Clip the thermometer back onto the pot and bring back to temp. Repeat the earlier steps with remaining sweet potato.

For the Lemon Garlic Aioli

  • Add all ingredients to a bowl. Mix well with a fork.
  • Serve the aioli with the fries and enjoy! Happy eating.
