Grilled Sriracha Garlic Butter Wings

These crazy delicious little flavor bombs are a hit wherever they go. And they’re grilled, not baked which makes ‘em even better. Did I mention only 4 ingredients??

Appetizer Serving for 2-4

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 lbs chicken wings (aka party wings)
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil, like avocado
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup Sriracha
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat grill on medium/high
  2. Put wings in a large bowl, add oil, salt and pepper, toss well and place skin side down on grill, flip often until done the way you like it - which hopefully is not dry as toast
  3. While wings cook put butter, Sriracha and garlic in a small pot and heat over low until melted - stir to mix well and set aside
  4. When wings are done, mix them in batches with the sauce in large bowl
  5. Serve wings with sprinkle of salt and garnish with cilantro

Grilled Corn on the Cob Upgrade: Pesto Parmesan

If you’re not grilling corn, you’re frankly making a big damn mistake. And with pesto and parmesan, this version is stupid good. Imagine an Italian version of 'Elote'.


Makes 4 Ears of Corn
 

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 ears of corn, husks & silk removed
  • Neutral oil spray or 1 tablespoon of oil, like avocado
  • ¼-½ cup prepared pesto sauce (or make your own: Fresh Basil Pesto)
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ¼ cup grated/finely shredded fresh parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS

  1. Wrap each ear of corn in Saran wrap, microwave on high for 5 minutes - remove plastic wrap
  2. Heat grill to medium high
  3. Spray/rub oil lightly on each ear of corn and place on the grill - turning occasionally and get grill marks - about 5 minutes
  4. When corn gets color on all sides, brush pesto on all sides
  5. Serve with a pinch of salt and garnish with parmesan on top
