Salmon, Prawns and Honey and black pepper sweet potatoes with Vegetables
One day I decided to try something new with the way I do sweet potatoes. Traditionally, I tend to do them in the form of wedges or mash and both ways are great. This time though, I have decided to cut them in cubes and roast them in honey and crushed black peppercorns.
Doing this adds spice and crunch to the sweet potato and the honey brings out the sweetness of the potato. The tender potatoes goes well really with savoury salmon and juicy prawns.
Of course there is buttery spinach that is not too over done either. It also was added on the salmon just to brighten it up. Finally there is the crunchy yet buttery sweetcorn to go with the food. It is definitely a great meal to have during the wee.
