Lime Coconut Sweet Potato Bites

A great little appetizer that is low in fat and high in vitamin A!

2 sweet potatoes
2 TBSP butter
1 small clove garlic sliced
2 TBSP toasted coconut
1 TBSP lime juice
1 TSP zested lime peel
Dash of hot sauce
Salt to taste

Peel potatoes and cut into 1/2-in (1 cm) cubes. Place in a medium saucepan and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil and simmer until almost fork tender, about 3 minutes. Drain well and pat dry with paper towel.

In a skillet set over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove garlic and discard. When pan is hot, add cubes of potato and cook, turning until golden on each side, about 8 minutes.

Add coconut, lime juice, lime peel and hot pepper sauce to pan; toss potatoes to coat evenly. Taste and add salt if necessary. Skewer each potato cube with a toothpick and arrange on a platter. Serve at room temperature
