Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Peel the sweet potato, then cut it into 1/2-inch wide fries.
Coat with a small amount of the cooking oil onto the surface of a large baking sheet, making sure the baking sheet is completely coated. Add the sweet potato fries, then drizzle the remainder of the 1 Tbsp oil over top. Toss the sweet potatoes until they are fully coated in oil. Top with a pinch of salt.
Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven, stir them well making sure every piece has been turned, then bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until they are blistered and browned.
While the sweet potato fries are baking, prepare the peanut lime dressing. In a bowl, combine the peanut butter, brown sugar, minced garlic, grated ginger, lime juice, soy sauce and oil. Stir or whisk until the dressing is smooth.
Once the sweet potatoes have finished baking, divide between two plates. Drizzle the peanut lime dressing over top, then finish with a generous handful of chopped cilantro, a sprinkle of chopped peanuts and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Serve immediately.
