It didn’t take me long to figure out what to partake. All day, my seasoned chicken wings were swirling and flapping in my brain. Reached home, placed the bad boys at room temperature and grabbed hold of my lonely zucchini in the vegetable tray. I was on a mission; it was going to be grilled red potatoes and zucchini to pair with my spicy jerk wings.
As my chicken wings roasted in the oven at 375 degrees on a baking tray, I did a parboil of my potatoes after cutting them in circles (skin-on).
After potatoes were finished they were dried on dish-cloth and brushed with olive oil. In addition, zucchini was sliced and brushed with olive oil. Guys, it was time for action. My grill pan was hot and ready for my veggies.
With a sprinkle of a pinch of salt on hot veggies, they were all done. By this time my dear hot and spicy jerk wings were screaming for my attention. My humble abode was smelling so amazing and boy, the smoke alarm also got excited. I had to pop open my sliding doors and windows. What was I thinking? I should have known better that ventilation is needed. Though I like the hot firemen down the block, there’s no way I needed the interruption.
Not to worry; as soon as I got some ventilation going, I proceeded to make a concoction of a little more jerk sauce,a squeeze of ketchup and honey and with a thorough stir, I brushed my dear wings. Oh, they were so shiny. I placed them back in the oven and gave them another five minutes at 385 degrees. That took the ‘cake’. They were super-brown and ready for my waiting palate.
Guys, with a rough tear of parsley I did a quick scatter on top of my delicious wings in waiting. The combination was so balanced and utterly divine. With the spicy wings and smooth yet crusty grilled potatoes, already my taste buds and I were very much in accord. All I needed was a refreshing drink of Moscato (mango/strawberry) I had on hand.
Salud guys! Have a Grilling week-end!!
