Sweet Potato Fries

Upon arrival at Turtle Bay, I was so excited to try their famous 'Sweet Potato Fries' and I can 100% confirm they did not disappoint. Washed down with a Hummingbird cocktail which is made with white rum, Tia Maria, banana liqueur, cream, fresh banana & coconut (I have an obsession with the taste of coconut) I left the restaurant craving these chips. So, my mum and I decided to make some of our own and they turned out brilliantly. Now you can enjoy 'fried chips' without feeling too guilty considering sweet potatoes are good for you (albeit they are fried, but who really cares when they taste this good).  

You will need:

Sweet Potatoes (preferably pre-cooked because whilst cooking it will be easier to achieve a crispy outer texture and a softer, fluffy inside)
Olive Oil or any other kind of cooking oil
1 x pinch of sea salt optional

The pictures and ingredients list are fairly self-explanatory but just in case:

1. Pre heat the cooking oil in a pan until the oil is boiling (to test it, drop a prepared chip into the pan and if it begins to sizzle, it's ready!) 
2. Cut the sweet potatoes in to chip-size portions
3. Move the chips around the pan to avoid burning them 
4. Wait until crisp and golden 
5. Sprinkle with sea salt

They can be reheated, but I doubt there will be any left to reheat...
