139/18: Turmeric and Ginger Wings

139/18 – Turmeric and Ginger Wings:

One of my favourite books to cook from is Amazing Malaysian by Norman Musa. I have cooked a lot of the recipes in my kitchen and a couple on the BBQ. Norman recently released some chicken wing recipes on PDF for the bargain price of £1.50 so I bought the recipes and following on from the fantastic satay chicken wings, next up was Turmeric and Ginger Wings.

133/18: Satay Chicken Wings


Two packs of chicken wings from Gartmorn farm, a bargain at £2 a pack! I mainly cook only with chicken from these guys these days as it’s some of the highest quality and best tasting chicken I have eaten to date.


First the chicken wings were cut into winglets then I blitzed turmeric, lemongrass and ginger into a paste and mixed it into the wings along with rapeseed oil, lime zest and juice, coconut milk, black pepper, sea salt and brown sugar. With everything thoroughly mixed together I put the bowl in the fridge for an hour.

A full chimney of Oxford Charcoal Cherry lumpwood was fired up and poured into the Vortex / Fuel dome (see my review below):


Once the grill was up to temperature I placed the chicken wings around the outside, dropped a chunk of sweet chestnut over the vortex and put the lid on the grill.

I rotated the lid every 10 minutes and after 40 minutes the chicken was reading 75C internal temperature on the Thermapen so time to come off.

The wings were topped with chopped parsley and chilli flakes.  Turmeric and Ginger wings


I do love cooking chicken wings on the BBQ, the vortex especially makes it very easy to get crispy “fried” chicken on your grill. This recipe by Norman Musa was really easy to put together but was really tasty. The ginger added a nice taste to the wings and there was a hint of spice from the chilli flakes..

Another great recipe and pretty easy to cook. Buy the recipes for only £1.50, there are 12 recipes included.
