Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Slice the sweet potatoes into wedges of even thickness and add to a large Ziploc bag with 1 tablespoon of the starch. Shake to coat, and add the other tablespoon of starch if needed to fully cover.
  • Add the olive oil, salt, and pepper to the bag and toss to coat. Arrange the sweet potato wedges on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer, do not overlap.
  • Bake the sweet potato wedges for 23 to 26 minutes, flipping once halfway through roasting.
  • While the wedges are cooking, combine the softened butter, chile paste, garlic powder, lime juice, lime zest, and sea salt in a large bowl.
  • Once the wedges have finished roasting, remove from the pan and transfer to the bowl with the butter mixture and toss to coat.
  • Transfer to a plate and garnish with chopped chives. Serve with lime wedges and sea salt.
