The thing about sweet potatoes is: They pair well with poultry, but not as well with fish or red meat. I generally served them only with poultry (as the protein), whose relative blandness can tolerate the sheer sweetness of this vegetable.
That said, there are hundreds of ways to make such a pairing very interesting indeed.
Pumpkin figures into a number of the world's cuisines, and sweet potatoes can be used in "similar" combinations.
Sweet potato pancakes with a light fruit &/or dairy sauce/dip make a great snack.
Their density and sweetness are well balanced by bitter, pungent, and acidic tastes, too.

Salmon works really well with sweet potatoes. Both have deep, earthy notes that compliment well.  What I call "autumn tones"
No other fish, as you've said san j, works at all IMO.

I serve sweet potatoes and/or carrots with beef all the time. When you use savory spices with the sweet potatoes, they end up "flavorful" rather than "sweet." Did I already share my roasted sweet potato recipe on this thread? Just peel and cube the veggies, roast with olive oil, sea salt, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika.

We make that dish frequently- with roasted turkey breast, with beef burgers, with sauteed  ground beef, with sauteed turkey tenderloins. About the only dinner I wouldn't pair that with is pizza.

My sister in law tossed some into the microwave as is. I could not believe the difference in taste. Very rich and tasted like she added spice but did n't.

Also, tzimmes, a traditional Eastern European Jewish food commonly served for the Jewish New Year (coming up this Sunday night through Tuesday)

It's chunks of beef, with assorted dried or fresh fruits and carrots and/or sweet potatoes, cooked slowly over a low heat (in the oven or stovetop, whatever you have available.) Hundreds of variations exist- some add unhealthy ingredients like margarine and brown sugar, some use potatoes in there too ,etc. Mine is chunks of beef with carrots, sweet potatoes, and raisins, and sometimes dried apricots if I have any on hand.
