These yuca fries are golden and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside​; a must try!
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Latin American
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 yucas
  • 5-6 tbsp coconut oil
  • Sea salt, to taste
  1. Peel yucas and slice them into ½ inch - ¾ inch fries or sticks.
  2. Fill up a large pot with cold water and place yuca sticks in it.
  3. Bring water to a boil and allow yuca sticks to cook for 10 minutes. Your yuca sticks will be tender and you will be able to pierce them with a fork/knife; this means they are cooked through.
  4. Place yuca sticks in drainer and let them drain for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Heat up 2-3 tbsp of coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat.
  6. Add half of the yuca sticks to the pan, making sure they don't overlap, and fry until all sides are golden brown, about 10 minutes. Repeat until all yuca sticks are fried.
  7. Transfer yuca sticks to a plate lined with a paper towel and sprinkle sea salt to liking.
  8. Enjoy right away by themselves or with favorite condiment.
