  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C. Line a sheet pan with foil.

  2. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and rub on all sides with some oil. Place potatoes cut-side down on sheet pan. Season the tops with some salt. Transfer to the oven and roast until potatoes can be easily pierced with a fork, ~30 minutes.

  3. When potatoes are nearly finished cooking, heat a skillet with oil over medium heat. When oil is shimmering, add shrimp and saute for 1 to 2 minutes to start cooking. Pour honey-adobo sauce over top and saute everything together until shrimp is coated, 2 to 3 minutes more.

  4. Squeeze a few of the lime wedges over the shrimp. 

  5. Set out toppings - shrimp, romaine, avocados, cilantro, radishes, and remaining lime wedges. 

  6. Gently mash sweet potatoes with a fork. Have everyone top their sweet potatoes at the table and enjoy!
