Dragon wings.

I've made it no secret that Nigella's Kitchen book is my favourite cook book of all time, and I regularly bake and cook for this culinary masterpiece. Under the chapter "Kitchen Pickings" Nigella shares a recipe for Dragon Wings, a seriously spicy marinade which coats and seasons the wings. Again, with the majority of her recipes this was a seriously easy and delicious dish. I combined the suggested ingredients of chillies, red pepper and ginger until it turned into a paste. I made one amendment to the recipe and instead of using 80ml of garlic oil and 80 ml vegetable oil, i just used 5 tablespoons of oil, as I wanted to minimise the calories. Once the ingredients were combined I marinaded with the wings and placed in a baking dish.

Here is how my Dragon wings turned out:

I left to cook in the oven for 50 minutes after which point they were baked and tasted fabulous.

For anyone who loves spicy wings this is the "go to" recipe.


5 long red chillies, de-seeded and halved
1 red pepper, de-seeded and core removed
2 x 8cm pieces fresh ginger, peeled and cut into small chunks
1 tablespoon salt (I used 1.5 tablespoon of all purpose seasoning)
2 tea spoons rice vinegar
80 ml garlic oil (I used 3 cloves of garlic)
80 ml vegetarian oil (I used 5 tbsp of vegetarian oil)
20 chicken wings

Preheat the oven to 200C/ gas mark 7. Process the chillies, red pepper, ginger, salt, vinegar and oil in a food processor and whizz until smooth. Coat the chicken wings in the marinade and leave to marinade overnight.
Place the marinaded chicken wings in an oven proof dish and roast for 40-50 minutes.
