Harissa Wings

After making roasted harissa cauliflower the other day (my first encounter with harissa) I knew after the first bite that the next thing I was going to make with the spicy red pepper paste would be Harissa chicken wings. There was no doubt in my mind that I was in for a wonderful treat. You get a nice kick, but don’t be afraid. Harissa is not crazy spicy, not at all. It has a wonderful earthy flavor to it. I could eat it all day. On wings I could eat it all week.

Harissa Wings

Harissa can be found in the Mediterranean section of your local grocery store. I haven’t tried making it home yet, but I will. The consistency reminds me a bit of hummus, though it’s certainly not hummus. But, oh…. it just hit me… harissa sure would be great in hummus! I’m off to try that now!

Buffalo Wild Wings Salt and Vinegar Wings

The bottle says right on it, in big letters, ‘Salt and Vinegar’. It’s no fib, either. No false advertising there. Nothing but truth. Buffalo Wild Wings’ Salt and Vinegar wing seasoning brings the salt and vinegar. Don’t open it and stick your nose in and take a big whiff unless you’re prepared for the vinegar, because it’s coming.

Buffalo Wild Wings Salt and Vinegar Wings

I usually only season my dry wings after cooking. But for extra flavor, try tossing the raw wings with a few tablespoons of vegetable oil and then season well. Cook as desired, then season more just before serving.

This is my first time using a seasoning from Buffalo Wild Wings. I loved the Salt and Vinegar flavor for sure. Good thing I bought a bottle of each of their available flavors to try!

Honey Old Bay Wings

My addiction to Old Bay seasoning began long ago. And as often as possible, I feed my addiction. Seafood and wings are my favorite uses of the classic seasoning. These honey Old Bay wings not only have that great seafood seasoning flavor, they have a bit of sweetness too. And a bit of heat. Not a lot, but just a hint. Nothing to overpower the main reason I made these wings: Old Bay flavor.

Honey Old Bay Wings

My favorite variation on these honey Old Bay wings is to leave out the cayenne pepper and substitute Mike’s Hot Honey for ‘regular’ honey instead. Mike’s Hot Honey is just that: hot danged honey! It’s creamy smooth and packs a serious kick. It’s not for the faint of heart, so if you’re a bit worried about the heat, try adding just a bit of it to your ‘regular’ honey and give it a taste.

Buffalo Wild Wings Jammin’ Jalapeno Wings

Where have I been that I haven’t tried the Jammin’ Jalapeno wings at Buffalo Wild Wings? I mean, dang I love this sauce! Just a bit spicy (perfectly so). A hint of lime (but not too lime-y!). And just a bit of Tequila (not much but it adds a little something). I truly enjoyed this sauce, it’s one of my all-time store-bought favorites.

Buffalo Wild Wings Jammin' Jalapeno Wings

Jammin’ Jalapeno wings is just one of the sauces I picked up at my local Buffalo Wild Wings the other day. I admit it, I backed up the truck and bought one of each. And all of their wing seasonings too. Needless to say, you’ll be seeing a lot more BW3s posts here soon. If there’s no B-Dubs near you can buy them online.

Kosmos Q Honey Barbecue Wing Dust Wings

I’m a HUGE fan of dry wings. You know, wings that are cooked up nice and crunchy then tossed with a seasoning such as Kosmos Q’s Honey Barbecue wing dust . No sauce. Yeah, you can have a dipping sauce, but the wings themselves are not tossed in anything but seasoning. I’m happy to see more and more restaurants and bars now offer dry wings in addition to wet ones.

I tossed some air fryer wings with Kosmos Q’s Honey Barbecue wing dust and proceeded to devour each and every one. And quickly. I loved the lightly smoky, lightly sweet seasoning. They weren’t quite what I would call dessert wings, but I sure felt like I was cheating on my diet when I was eating them (even though I wasn’t!). The dust is definitely finger-licking good!

Kosmos Q Honey Barbecue Wing Dust Wings

Kosmos Q Honey Barbecue wing dust isn’t just for wings, nope. This stuff is fantastic on a grilled chicken, be it pieces or a whole bird. You can sprinkle it on popcorn. And on roasted peanuts. Ribs. Anywhere you’re looking for some BBQ sweetness, reach for Kosmos Q first.

You get a lot in each and every bag of Kosmos Q’s wing dusts.. The seasonings are high quality and seasoned perfectly. You won’t regret buying it. And you won’t regret doing what I did: buy a bag of each and every flavor!
