Speaking Of Hot Sauce

preview-red

Speaking of hot sauce, and I mean in reference to BeyoncĂ©’s new powerful video Formation, I make some mean hot wings. And, well it’s Superbowl time. I’m still kind of a sore loser as my Patriots didn’t make the cut but I’m excited at the prospect of Cam Newton winning to shut down the nay-sayers. Anyway, Happy Superbowl Sunday y’all! I never really use a recipe for hot wings (always eye-ball it) but this is a good estimate and yes, people always LOVE my wings!

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon salt

10 chicken wings

vegetable oil for frying

1/4 cup butter

1/4 cup hot sauce

black pepper to taste

pinch of garlic powder

Melt a lot of hot sauce with real unsalted butter in a small pot. Mix flour with salt, pepper, paprika and a pinch of garlic powder. Dredge the wings in buttermilk (if you have time, you can marinate them overnight in buttermilk) and then cover them in the flour mix. Fry in hot vegetable oil turning them to brown lightly on both sides. Drain them on a paper towel to soak up the extra oil. And then put the wings inside of the small pot with butter and hot sauce. Place on a plate and serve with blue cheese dressing and celery. Yummy! Enjoy.

Sincerely,

“Fashionably-Late”
