Guess what? My Thai Spiced French Fries have made it to the Alexia Foods top four in the semi finals of the Reinvent a Classic blogger contest.There were a few things for certain when it came to my contest entry. I knew I wanted to use sweet potatoes and I wanted a unique flavor twist. The Thai spice adds lots of flavor. I also knew I wanted julienne cut fries because those are best for dipping.

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 35 mins
  • Yields: 4 Servings


2 large Sweet Potatoes -or- 2 large Russet Potatoes, cut into julienne strips

2 tablespoons Peanut Oil, Sunflower or Canola Oil

1 tablespoon Lime Juice

2 teaspoons Thai Red Curry Paste

1/2 teaspoon Soy Sauce

1 teaspoon Brown Sugar

1/2 teaspoon dried Cilantro

1/4 teaspoon Garlic Salt

1/4 teaspoon ground Ginger

1/8 tsp ground Cinnamon

Optional Garnish

cracked Black Pepper before serving

sprinkle of fresh or dried Cilantro


1 Pre heat your oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or silpat. Combine the oil, lime juice, Thai paste, soy sauce, sugar, seasonings and spices in a large bowl. Coat sweet potatoes (or russets) with the mixture. Lay them in a single layer and bake for about 30-35 minutes flipping each fry 15 minutes into baking time.


1 I don’t want to get too specific on the measurement of spices & seasonings used for this recipe as you can adjust to taste.

2 Use russet or sweet potatoes. A combo of both would be wonderful too.
