Yuca Fries

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time10 mins


  • Ingredients:
  • cassava/yuca/manioc quantity is how much you want to make
  • palm oil for frying
  • Spice Blend Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons parsley
  • 2 teaspoons jalapeno salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper.


  • Peel vegetable very well until there is no more skin left. There is an inner core that must be cut off in the middle. If this core is left in, it will be stringy when eating and will also taste bitter. Cut into matchstick slices.
  • Combine spice blend ingredients and mix well.
  • Heat enough oil for deep frying. Fry until golden brown and crispy.
  • Drain on paper towels and immediately sprinkle with spice blend.


Dried piri piri peppers would commonly be used in the spice blend, but I had run out so used the jalapeno salt instead.
