vietnamese chicken wings
3 Pound chicken wings
2 Tablespoon garlic, minced
1/4 Cup finely chopped shallot
1/4 Cup ginger, minced
3 Tablespoon Scallion whites, chopped
1/2 Cup Lemongrass Bottoms, chopped
3 Tablespoon packed brown sugar
Cup fish sauce
3 Tablespoon lime juice
3 Tablespoon peanut oil
1 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Cup Peanuts, Dry-Roasted, Chopped
1/4 Cup cilantro, finely chopped
Split wings at the joint and remove the tips. Rinse the wings under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside in a large bowl.
Combine the garlic (roughly chopped), shallots, ginger, scallions, lemongrass, brown sugar, fish sauce, lime juice, and peanut oil in a food processor and process until smooth. Pour the marinade over the wings and place in a large resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate overnight.
When ready to cook, start your Z Grill grill on Smoke. Preheat with lid closed, 5 minutes.
Remove the wings from the marinade. Reserve the marinade and put in a small pot and bring to a boil and then remove from heat. Use to brush the wings while they cook.
Place the wings on the grill, season with 1 tsp salt and smoke for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, increase grill temperature to 350 degrees F and roast for 45 to 50 minutes turning once halfway through and brushing on reserved sauce when turned.
Remove wings from grill, place the wings on a serving platter and garnish with the peanuts and cilantro. Enjoy!
