My husband never liked yams until I served them to him this way. The yams create their own glaze on the grill. You can add more herbs and spices to suit your own taste.

Directions

  • Preheat a grill for high heat. When the grill is hot, lightly oil the grate. Coat the strips of yam with olive oil cooking spray and season with salt.

  • Arrange the yam strips on the grate crosswise so they don't fall through. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes per side, until tender and glazed. Serve with butter.

Tip

Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I just tried this a few weeks ago for the first time. Very good and very easy. I didn't peel the yams scrubbed them good instead. I drizzeled with olive oil and then the salt and pepper.

Guess I should have kept a closer eye on the yams because they burnt to a crisp! One minute they were fine and the next they were totally black. A few pieces managed to be saved but they were a bit dry and didn't have much flavor. Don't think I'll be grilling yams again.

Loved them! I too put the sweet potatoes in the microwave for just 4 minutes to start the cooking process then put them on the grill. Brushed with butter then added a little Splenda brown sugar on top at the end to carmelize. Yum!!

We're trying to be heart healthy so instead of the salt I added Garlic Powder Paprika Cayenne Pepper and Chili Pepper to try to zest them up a bit. We skipped the butter. Tasted delicious (even without the butter and salt!)

I liked it except I cut the slices crosswise and dipped them in olive oil. Also since I like brown sugared sweet potatoes I took about 6 or so of slices put wrapped them in foil with some butter brown sugar and ice cubes. I put the package on the grill until the sweet potato slices were soft. Yum!

I modified this recipe by first steaming the yam slices for about 5 minutes and substituted the olive oil with a butter honey mixture and then sprinkled with cinnamon & sugar. Everyone loved them!

This was great. I only added butter for my guests. I try to watch added fat and just plain it was absolutely delicious. I did this in a grill pan and it worked perfectly on medium high heat. I will make these often!

Yum! I did burn about half of them because I wasn't paying close enough attention so make sure you keep an eye on them! Super tasty. Thanks:)

I took the other reviewers advice and pre-cooked these for a couple mins. in the microwave. I also added a little brown sugar to the oil olive to add some sweetness. All in all these were good... my husband loved them.
