Born on the Bayou wings

Welcome back to the second recipe of what is going to be a crazy winging adventure.

I was a little nervous when I started this one, mainly because I’m terrible when it comes to batters. I usually make them too runny or way to thick, in most cases they have lumps and no flavour.
Let’s just say this recipe changed the way I see batters for ever, in a good way…

This is a pretty easy dish to make because  it only has 4 main steps:

  • Mix all the dry ingredients together

(From Top-Middle clockwise: sugar,Cornstach, baking powder, cajun seasoning, cinnamon, garlic powder, onion powder, (center) nutmeg)

  • Mix all the above ingredients into the flour with Bourbon and water

Yip it’s that easy.
The ingredients looked very interesting when I first read them and I wasn’t sure if they worked together, let’s just say I was wrong.

The bourbon and the cinnamon came through beautifully and together made for a great combination.

I’m not from American so my guess is that this batter was originally designed for fish or crab meat. It was very tasty but I struggled to eat more than 4 wings. I see this being used in the future but for a meal than for a snack dish.

I’ve been asked a few times since cooking Recipe one what the measurements are for the ingredients. I will not be giving out the exact measurements for the dishes I cook out of respect for the author and the law. If you want the exact recipe please do buy the book which you can find here from Amazon
