The other day, while out shopping, I saw a rare sight - packets of turkey wings, and on special offer! They were all trimmed, and only the thickest part of the wing was in the packet; 10 pieces in all and with the promise of lots of economical meals! Furthermore, I thought that it would be a good opportunity to try something new.
Turkey wings (I had 10)
Freshly ground black pepper
1 Large onion
1 Red or green pepper
1 Small chilli
A little butter for sauteeing
5 tblesp Tomato sauce
Dash of Tabasco sauce
1 garlic clove (or more according to taste)
1 teasp oregano
Salt and pepper to taste
I put the wings into an oven pan with a light coating of olive oil, and sprinkled both sides with pepper, garlic salt and some barbecue seasoning. Popped them into the oven at 180˚C (356˚F) for about 45 mins.
Meanwhile I chopped the onion, pepper and chilli, sautéed them in a little butter until just soft. I added the tomato sauce and tabasco, cooked for a few minutes longer until just boiling. I then added the crushed garlic clove, some salt and pepper to taste and a teaspoon of oregano. I cooked it for a few more minutes, then switched off the heat.
I took the wings out of the oven at 45 mins and smothered the sauce over them; the dish then went back into the oven until the sauce had browned slightly and was bubbling well, about another 30 minutes.
Serve with vegetables of your choice; spiced rice works well. The meal was delicious and I will certainly keep an eye out for turkey wings when I next go shopping; they were not expensive and the big wings contain a lot of meat. Enjoy!
I apologise for the poor quality photos, but I almost forgot to take them....... all a bit of a rush, as the cooking seemed to take priority!!
