Salmon Cakes with Cajun Yam Fries, recipes from Dr. Gourmet
Place a large skillet in the oven and set the preheat to 325°F.

Scrub the yams well and then cut into wedges. It's easiest to cut them in half lengthwise and then quarters and then eighths.

When the oven is hot spray the pan lightly with oil.

Add the yam wedges and sprinkle the salt, pepper and cajun spice over the top. Spray lightly with olive oil.

Return the pan to the oven and cook for about 25 minutes, tossing frequently.

Serve hot.
