Crispy Hot Wings

Crispy and spicy outside with perfectly soft meat

The trick for these is to get the wings as dry as possible before cooking. I salted these to extract the moisture, put them on absorbent paper in the fridge for a few hours, patted dry then repeated, replacing with clean absorbent paper. Pat dry, then coat in the dry rub of your choice (my recipe is below) and put back in the fridge overnight, in a bowl covered with clingfilm. The next tip is to use a very hot oven. Pre heat to 220 degrees. Use a flat baking tray lined with foil, and place a wire rack on top. Sit the wings on the rack. Bake for 25 mins in the top half of the oven, then turn wings over and bake for another 20 mins.

While the wings are cooking, I crisped up some finely chopped chorizo (about a minute in the microwave), melted some butter and added it to a large bowl with my ORIGINAL HOT SAUCE & the chorizo. Take the cooked wings out of the oven and toss in this butter mix before serving. Garnish with chopped chive, chilli flakes, sesame seed and fresh parsley.

For the dry rub, I used:

smoked paprika, salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, ginger, cumin & mustard.

Enjoy.

note: These would be just as nice with a cool garlic mayo dip. (Add a teaspoon of my GARLIC SAUCE to 4 tsp of light mayo).
