Yuca Frita
September 01, 2018

Only change I would make is to treat the yucca like potato frites, and soak them. I slice the yucca and rinse in cold water. Then I soak the sliced pieces in a cold water bath for one hour. I pour out the soak liquid and replenish the bowl of sliced yucca with more cold water and soak for another hour. This will allow your frites to fry up in the pan with a crispy exterior that surrounds an airy and flaky center. It helps “de-starch” the yucca which makes for a less heavy treat. A spritz of lime on the finished product is a must!
