Crispy air fried Japanese sweet potato fries loaded with a creamy buffalo aioli, hot sauce drizzle, and chopped green onion!
If you need one good reason to get an air fryer, this is it. I mean, just the fries alone made getting one worth it to me. They come out crispy and QUICK! Like half the time as the oven. I don’t know about you, but I get super impatient when waiting for my fries to cook.

Air Fried Japanese Sweet Potato Fries
2 Japanese sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into fries
1–2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground mustard
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup mayo
2 tbsp store bought buffalo sauce of choice
pinch of paprika
salt to taste
Hot sauce for drizzling, I use Frank’s Red Hot
Chopped green onion, to taste
Crumbled blue cheese or gorgonzola, to taste, optional
First, take your cut Japanese sweet potato fries and soak them in a bowl of water for at least 30 minutes, this helps them get extra crispy!
While the fries are soaking in water prep your buffalo aioli by combining all the ingredients and mixing until smooth and well combined. Store in an air tight container and chill until ready to use.
Drain your fries and add them to a bowl mixed with olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder and ground mustard. Toss fries together with oil and seasonings then add to the air fryer basket.
Air fry at 380 degrees for 16-18 minutes or until crispy. Toss once or twice throughout cook time.
Carefully, add fries to a plate and drizzle with buffalo aioli, hot sauce, chopped green onion and blue cheese/gorgonzola (if using) and serve immediately!
