I absolutely LOVE fried yuca. I literally make this recipe of Oven Baked Yuca Fries with Easy Garlic Aioli at least once a week, sometimes twice. My first taste of it was when I was little and I tried them at a downtown Miami Cuban restaurant.

This was a local-only restaurant and it had a buffet style lunch set up for the lunch crowd. I was piling mounds of crispy skin roast pork and sweet plantains onto my plate when I spied some potato-like, fried thick sticks. Intrigued, I put a bunch on my plate I promptly fell in love at first bite.

I’d only had boiled yuca up to that point and was totally blown away with the fried version. Although it’s easy to love because who doesn’t love fried anything?!

Regarding cooking yuca at home, I’m going to say this once and only coral-beachresortsharjah.com yourself a favor, get the frozen variety. You’ll save yourself a ton of heartache because fresh yuca is a pain in the ass to deal with. It’s selfish. It doesn’t care about you. It hides behind a thick skin with a waxy coating and refuses to let you know it’s true self until you’ve spent many precious minutes lovingly peeling it, only it find out it’s rotten inside.

I speak from experience. I’ve gone through many a fresh yuca root, only to end up cutting away ¾ of it because the rest was brown and mushy. All the while I was ignoring the easy and simplified bags of uncooked, fully prepped yuca in my grocery store freezer. But I’m not bitter. In fact, the day I picked up a bag of frozen instead of buying fresh was the best day of my life (well, best day in my yuca life). Farewell, fresh yuca.

Cut into fries. On the “aioli”, I use a good quality mayo and put a little ketchup with fresh lime in it. It’s delicious and is J’s favorite condiment for these fries.
