Natalie Paramore blew us - and the judges - away with her chicken wings at our Rosso & Flynn Grill-Off. She shares the recipe for her sweet and funky lime and fish sauce chicken wings below. You can read more from Natalie on her blog and Instagram.
The wings on the grill right before being sauced.
1 cup brown sugar, divided
6 cloves of garlic, minced
6 tablespoons of fish sauce
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped, reserve some for garnish
1/2 cup butter, melted, divided
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon flaky salt, divided
1. Whisk together 1/2 tablespoon of salt with 2 tablespoons melted butter, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 3 tablespoons fish sauce and lime juice. Dredge wings in sauce and put onto grill.
2. Grill on medium-high heat until wings reach 165 degrees, turning throughout to ensure even browning.
3. While grilling, in a separate grill-safe bowl, whisk together remaining brown sugar, butter, garlic and cilantro. Place onto top rack of grill to melt together. Whisk again.
4. Toss cooked wings in sauce and top with flaky salt, remaining fish sauce and cilantro. Serve immediately!
