  • lb fresh yuca
  • 2 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable or Canola Oil for frying


  • Place the yuca in a medium pot and cover it with enough water. Add the garlic and season with salt to taste. Cover the pot and bring it to a boil on high heat, then reduce to a simmer and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until it's tender.
  • Drain the yuca and let it cool on a cutting board. Once it has cooled, pat dry it with a paper towel and cut it into thick pieces.
  • Fry the yuca at 350ºF for about 3-5 minutes or until they're golden brown. Then take them out of the oil and drain them on paper towels.
  • Season them with salt to taste and serve immediately with your favorite sauce.
