The weather is warming up here in Aotearoa which means barbecue season is upon us. After 17 years barbecuing (taken from my thirteenth birthday where I was gifted my first barbecue) I’m looking for something different, interesting and a change from steak and sausages. These spicy wings fit the bill.
There can be a power struggle over the barbecue in our house – between two people who rate themselves, probably in the top 10% of barbeque-ers in the country. Most of the time I’ll opt for the supporting role of making salads and prepping which I am completely satisfied with, especially when it’s cold outside or when we have people round and I’d rather mingle and eat snacks.
These wings were shallow fried in a cast iron skillet on the side burner of our barbecue. But they are also suited to grilling over an open flame.
