Grill-Roasted Sweet Potato Fries with Maple Soy Glaze

Grill-Roasted Sweet Potato Fries with Maple Soy Glaze

These sweet potato fries are delightfully crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. The maple soy glaze adds a sweet and savory finish.

Ingredients

For the Sweet Potato Fries:

  • 2 sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 8 wedges each
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Fine sea salt

For the Maple Soy Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

Instructions

Prepare the grill for indirect cooking at 350° to 400°F.

Brush the sweet potato wedges on all sides with olive oil and then sprinkle with salt. Transfer the wedges to the grill, placing them skin-side down in the indirect cooking zone.

Cook with the hood closed, undisturbed for about 30 minutes. Check for a crisp outer layer and tender insides. Cook for up to 15 minutes more if necessary.

While the potatoes are cooking, reduce the soy sauce in an 8-inch skillet over medium heat until thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir frequently and be very careful not to burn the sauce. Stir in the brown sugar until dissolved. Return to a simmer and stir in the maple syrup.

Return to a simmer and then remove from the heat. Set aside and allow to cool and thicken.

Remove the potatoes from the grill and transfer to a serving dish or individual plates. Drizzle with the maple soy glaze.

Smoked Fish Chowder

1 FILLET, 10 – 12 OZ., SKIN ON SALMON
2 EARS SWEET CORN, HUSKED
3 STRIPS BACON
4 CANS CONDENSED CREAM OF POTATO SOUP
4 SOUP CANS, OR MORE AS NEEDED WHOLE MILK

3 SCALLIONS, WHITE AND GREEN PARTS THINLY SLICED CROSSWISE
2 TSP., OR MORE TO TASTE HOT SAUCE
ALDER RECOMMENDED HARDWOOD WOOD:

Preparation

  • When ready to cook, start the grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is
    established (4 to 5 minutes). Arrange the salmon skin-side down on the grill grate. Smoke
    for 30 minutes. Increase the temperature to 350F.
  • Cook the salmon for 30 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. (The exact time
    will depend on the thickness of the fillet.) There is no need to turn the fish. Using a large
    thin spatula, transfer the salmon to a wire rack to cool. Remove the skin. (The salmon can
    be made a day ahead, wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated.) Break into flakes and set
    aside.
  • When the grill reaches 350, arrange the corn and bacon strips on the grill grate. (The
    salmon will be roasting while you do this.) Roast the corn and the bacon until the corn is
    cooked through and browned in spots, turning as needed, and the bacon is crisp, about 15
    minutes.
  • In the meantime, bring the cream of potato soup and the milk to a simmer over medium
    heat in a large saucepan or Dutch oven on the stovetop. Gradually stir in the cream cheese
    and whisk to blend. Chop the bacon into bits and slice the corn off the cobs using long
    strokes of a chef’s knife.
  • Add to the soup along with the green onions. Stir in the salmon. Heat gently for 5 to 10
    minutes. Add the hot sauce to taste. If the chowder is too thick, add more milk. Serve at
    once.
