Harissa Baked Wings
- 22 chicken wings
- 5 Tbsp harissa spice see below for DIY spice blend
- 4-5 Tbsp harissa paste
- 4 Tbsp butter
- 1/4 cup honey (optional)
- 2 Tbsp ground cumin toasted if possible
- 2 Tbsp ground caraway toasted if possible
- 2 Tbsp ground coriander toasted if possible
- 2 Tbsp cinnamon
- 1 cup smoked chile peppers
- salt (to taste)
Preheat oven to 400°F. Place some parchment paper over a sheet pan
In a large bowl, combine chicken wings with harissa spice blend and rub together thoroughly with your hands. Spread wings on the parchment papered sheet pan, leaving a bit of room between each one. Bake for about 20 minutes
Remove the wings from the oven after 20 minutes and turn them over. Bake for another 10 minutes.
While wings are finishing baking, make a harissa sauce by adding the harissa paste and the butter together over medium heat. Add honey if desired to make it more sticky. I didn’t think it needed the honey, but if you prefer a sweeter, stickier sauce, add a bit of honey.
Remove wings from the oven and drizzle the harissa sauce over the wings. Serve with a tzatziki or dipping sauce of your choice.
