Method

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200C/400F.
  2. Divide the sweet potatoes over two trays, to prevent them overcrowding. This is essential to get a crispy chip. Drizzle over the olive oil and toss to coat. The other option is placing the olive oil dressed chips on wire racks over baking trays to get even crisping around the whole chip.
  3. Place the sweet potato chips in the oven and roast for 20-25 minutes. If they are on a tray, turn them halfway through cooking.
  4. Meanwhile, make the crab drizzle by mixing all the ingredients together in a bowl, adding a little extra garlic oil or lemon juice if you wish and season to taste.
  5. Remove the sweet potato chips from the oven. Place in a large bowl and toss in a good couple of pinches of salt to season.
  6. Place the chips in a bowl, cover in the crab and chilli drizzle and enjoy hot.
