This is a very popular way to serve yuca and is especially good as a side dish. These wedges also can be served with guasacaca (tomato and avocado sauce) as an hors d’oeuvre.

Most cooks prefer frozen yuca because the “fresh” yuca found in some supermarkets is not always truly fresh.

Some people prefer to freeze the yuca after it has been cooked and then fry it frozen. This method produces a very light yuca, but the fat splatters quite a bit when adding the frozen wedges to the hot oil.
