Pad Fry ~ Thai Sweet Potato Fries

01_fries_00014.tif

I have a weakness for sweet potato fries.  I’ve managed to have gotten one of our daughters totally hooked on my sweet potato fries with curry mayonnaise, an old fav of mine from the British pub days back in New England, that I’ve recreated.

Looking around today on Food Network I found this recipe for Thai sweet potato fries!  A warm and spicy combination of sweet potatoes, cilantro, lime, fried onions Sriracha and yes, BACON!

Sriracha1-300x200

Ingredients

1 16-to-20-ounce bag frozen sweet potato fries
3 strips bacon, chopped
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon fish sauce
2 teaspoons Asian chile sauce (such as Sriracha)
1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
Prepared fried onions or fried shallots, for topping

Directions

Bake the sweet potato fries as the label directs.

Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 8 minutes; remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Remove the skillet from the heat and add the brown sugar, fish sauce, chile sauce, lime juice and lime zest to the drippings. Stir until the sugar dissolves.

Transfer the fries to a serving dish. Drizzle with the chile sauce mixture, then sprinkle with the bacon, cilantro and fried onions.
