It’s so easy to pick up that phone on game day and order takeout wings, but it’s almost as easy to make your own batch of tasty wings at home. Chef Dave Santos, from Louro in the West Village, shares his Super Bowl Spiced Honey BBQ Wings so that you can get your game on without having to order out.
Dave’s Super Bowl Spiced Honey BBQ Wings
12 whole wings, cut in half and tip removed
1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce (Chef Santos prefers Bull’s Eye Brand when he isn’t making his own)
1/4 cup of hot sauce (Chef Santos recommends Frank’s red hot)
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp. ground black pepper
5 scallions sliced for garnish
home electric fryer.
Preheat the fryer to 350 degrees. Mix the remaining ingredients except for the scallions in a medium bowl.
Drop half the wings into the prepared fryer and fry for 7 to 8 minutes (fry the wings in two batches to ensure even cooking). The wings should be nice and crispy and a deep golden-brown color. When the wings are done, place them in a large bowl and pour the desired amount of sauce over the wings, and toss them so that they are fully coated. Place in a clean serving bowl and garnish with scallions.
