Why do some people think its necessary to honk their car horn when they see someone they know, it’s something I’ve never understood, there you are driving through town when you see a friend or relation and you feel compelled to honk your horn until they notice you. Are they saying look at me I’ve got a car or are they trying to affirm that they have a friend, it beats me. Maybe they have inferiority complexes ( if I don’t honk my horn they’ll never know I saw them), what the f*** does it matter, you have to be a really sad git to need it or do it, unfortunately there are some really sad gits around here.
Right enough of that, chicken wings are really cheap to buy, most butchers sell them for next to nothing as they usually throw them away. Now I am going to give you one of my secret recipes, it’s for Cajun spices. I got this recipe from a real New Orleans chef, here it is:
1 table spoon garlic powder(granules or salt can be used)
1 table spoon onion powder ( ditto)
2 teaspoons white pepper
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Mix this lot together and store in a jar, I generally mix up twice as much. This is the real deal if your going to cook Cajun.
Right back to the wings, put 1 tablespoon of spice, 1 tablespoon of plain flour and half a teaspoon of smoked paprika into a mixing bowl big enough to take your wings, add the wings, cover the bowl with cling film and give it a good shake to coat the wings thoroughly.
leave for an hour and then put them in a roasting pan and dress with oil, pop into a medium to low oven for 50 mins, turning once.
Take them out, this is where it gets good, poor over the wings a good quality Canadian Maple Syrup (don’t use anything else) and pop back into the oven for 20 mins, eat with your fingers and enjoy.
