Buffalo duck wings and hot sauce

Recommended Posts

I was up in Vero Beach today, and stopped by the new American Icon brewery. The facility is inside a former municipal power plant, and adjacent to the Florida East Coast Railway.

 

One item on the menu was Buffalo duck wings. Which turned out to be five meaty duck wings, lightly coated in what was likely corn starch, panko, black pepper, paprika, etc and deep fried. I was quite pleased. Thin crust, moist duck meat. Served with a peppery relish and a dry slaw.

 

I've not had duck wings before, and I don't know that I've seen them at the butcher. Have to try that out.

 

(I knew that there wouldn't be any trains passing by, and the day was a bit chilly with temps in the 60s and windy. The brewery has two fire pits outdoors and about two dozen tables outside. I chose to stay inside.)

How I would do it: Fully cook the wings first (simmering). Then dry and coat. If you try to cook them completely by frying, you might burn the coating long before the meat is done, and the wings will still be tough.

Yesterday I had the privilege of judging a steak cookoff at the Sam's Club in Plano, TX. One of the categories was tomahawks. Several of the cook teams used sous vide for the tomahawks and I was very impressed at what they were turning in for the judges. Moist, tender, juicy, and incredible. The one that was most beautiful to me unfortunately was over salted. There we over 40 teams cooking and turning in these steaks. Being a competition food judge is a good thing on some days. This competition was put on by the Steak Cookoff Associaiton.
