Sriracha Guava Chicken Wings
Sriracha+ Guava+ Chicken wings= What’s not to love? The chefs at the Beach Club restaurant at Aston Kaanapali Shores on Maui took three great tastes and combined them to taste even greater.
- 9 chicken wings
- 11 oz Sriracha
- 1 oz Guava Puree
- 2 oz Franks Red Hot Sauce
- ½ oz Butter
- 3 oz Kula Cucumbers
- 1 oz Vinegar
- 1 tsp Pickling Spices
- 1 tbsp Salt
- 1 tbsp Sugar
- 2 oz Buttermilk Dressing
- ¼ oz Chopped Cilantro
- ¼ Oz Chopped Green Onions
- 1 Orchid Flower
- First, pickle the cucumbers: Mix the salt, sugar and spices in the vinegar. Bring to a boil and let cool down. When cold, add to the diced cucumbers. Let this chill in the refrigerator for a few hours.
- Next, mix your sauce: Combine Franks Red Hot Sauce, Sriracha, guava puree and softened butter.
- Time to get cooking: Rinse and pat the chicken wings dry, then season and deep fry. Use a thermometer to ensure they're cooked to perfection, at least 165-degress Fahrenheit. Place the wings on a plate and top with chopped green onions and cilantro. Serve with a side sauce and the pickled cucumbers.
