2 pounds yuca (also known as cassava or manioc), peeled
Vegetable oil for frying
Fine sea salt


1. Boil yuca in water until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain, pat dry, trim fibrous inner core (you'll see it), and cut into 1/2-in.-thick sticks about 3 in. long.

2. Heat 2 to 3 in. oil in a large saucepan until oil registers 350° on a deep-fry thermometer. Fry yuca in batches until golden and crisp, about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle immediately with salt.
