Serves: 4
Total Calories: 292


4 sweet potatoes, medium (each 4 to 5 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches wide)
5 tablespoons soy sauce
5 tablespoons sake or dry sherry
2 tablespoons sugar
2 scallion, both white and green parts, trimmed and minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted


1. Preheat the grill to medium-high.

2. Scrub the potato skins and blot dry with paper towels.

3. When ready to cook, oil the grill grate. Place the sweet potatoes on the hot grate and grill, turning often with tongs, until very well browned and squeezably soft, 30 to 50 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Combine the soy sauce, sake, sugar, scallions, garlic, and sesame seeds in a small bowl and whisk until blended and the sugar is dissolved. Spoon the sauce into 4 small bowls or ramekins.

5. Serve the sweet potatoes with bowls of sauce. To eat out of hand, simply dip the potatoes in the sauce and eat away. To serve as a side dish, cut open the potatoes and spoon the sauce over them.
