I found two recipes that sounded good, put them together, added my own spin and here’s what I ended up with;
- 2½ pounds chicken wings
- ½ cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ teaspoon pepper
Mix together the marinade ingredients in a sealable plastic bag and add the chicken wings.
Seal and place in the refrigerator to marinate overnight.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ¼ cup Sriracha sauce
- ¼ cup honey
- 2 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp ginger, minced
- 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
Toss it all into a pot over medium heat. Once it simmers, turn it down to low and stir it every now and then so it doesn’t burn. When it’s thick, it’s done.
Pour the sauce over cooked chicken wings.
Garnish with any or all of these groovy toppings;
- toasted sesame seeds
- green onions
- Lime sections
- Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
I made wings but you could do drumsticks if you want.
Confession; I thought of making these too late so I didn’t marinate them. Also, I didn’t garnish them. They were delicious, but I think marinating them would provide a depth of flavour that I missed out on. As for garnish, well, if you came over with beer I’d make these and garnish them. And serve you cupcakes for dessert.
Try them and let me know how you changed the recipe to suit your taste and how they turned out.
I bought a bag of frozen fish fillets. Not the breaded kind, just white fish loins. (yes, they are actually called loins) They were on sale and it seemed like a good price and fish is healthy, right? So I bought this package of fish and it hung out in my freezer. I moved the package every time I reorganized the freezer to fit more rhubarb in there or to find the spinach. I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with it. Continue reading “Thai Fish Curry”
I had somewhat low expectations for this recipe. It looked like a standard pumpkin cake recipe. And since ‘brown butter’ is very trendy right now I’ve been avoiding it. I mean, I’ve been browning butter since before it was cool so I’m annoyed at all the jonny come latelys with their brown butter ways. Continue reading “Pumpkin Spice Cake with brown butter icing”
If you’re in the market for cheap, nutritious soup, you are in the right place. I have always waited until I had a ham bone to make stock, then make split pea with ham soup. I saw this method on America’s Test Kitchen a while ago, made myself some brief notes and gave it a shot. Continue reading “Split pea with ham soup from ATK”
Years ago I worked with Shelagh. I think she was the first person I ever met who loved food and cooking as much as I. We spent our breaks talking about new recipes and techniques. We were foodies before the word foodie was even a word. Continue reading “Enchiladas”
Not sure why exactly, but I had a craving for crab cakes recently. I have had this piece of paper held to my fridge by a magnet for a long time. Continue reading “Crab Cakes”
I have some pumpkin in my freezer. And it keeps calling my name. The other day I wondered if anyone has ever made pumpkin scones. Well, of course someone has. Starbucks make them. Continue reading “Pumpkin Scones”
I love me a no bake cheesecake with a cherry topping. A quick search gives numerous recipes that call for Cool Whip and a can of cherry pie filling. Um, no thanks. I prefer real cream and it’s so easy to make cherry pie filling, there’s no reason to buy the canned stuff. Continue reading “Cherry Cheesecake”
This recipe came to me years ago as “Squash Puff”. A delicious side dish made with pureed butternut squash. Or acorn squash. I’ve heard of a dish called turnip puff. I bet you could use any cooked and pureed vegetable in this dish. I wonder what it would be like with applesauce? I see this as a good way to use up veggies in your fridge that may be on their last legs-steam, puree, puff. Continue reading “Puff!”
You know how I love brownies. I have a few different brownie recipes on this blog. I also love bananas. A few recipes for muffins, cake and loaf reside on this blog too. What you may not know is that I love Chef Michael Smith. The other day, while watching a rerun of one of his tv shows, he featured banana brownies. Continue reading “Banana Brownies”
