  • 1 8 inch yuca
  • Sea salt for sprinkling
  • Oil for frying
  1. Peel the yuca. Cut the tubers into  2-3 pieces. Peel with a potato peeler or use a paring knife to peel it.

  2. Wash the yuca pieces and pat dry with paper towel.

  3. Cut the peeled yuca into fries.

  4. Place oil in a pot up to 3-4 inches. Heat up for about 10 minutes to 375 degrees F.

  5. Put in the fries and fry until crispy on the outside. Be sure to take out the fries as soon as they are crispy. If you leave them to keep frying, they will toughen up and be tough to chew.

  6. Take out the fries and place on paper towel to absorb the excess oil then sprinkle with a bit of sea salt.
  7. Enjoy warm. Yuca fries are best enjoyed warm. If you let them cool down they will become hard. Pair with your favorite dipping sauce or enjoy as it is. So good!
