Simple Pan Fried Corn

Image

Serves 4 (as a side)

Prep time: 10 mins

Cook time: 6 mins

 

Tools

Heavy skillet

 

Ingredients

2 ears of corn on the cob

¼ cup sweet peppers diced

1tbls olive oil

1 tbls butter

1 clove garlic roughly chopped

1 shallot (or small onion) diced

¼ cup celery diced

Salt and pepper to taste

Chili flakes to taste

 

Method

Place skillet on stove on high heat.  While the pan is heating, remove the kernels from the corn cob. When the skillet is slightly smoking, add olive oil and butter (the olive oil keeps the butter from burning).  Add the garlic to the skillet and stir until you can smell the garlicky smell.

Add all the ingredients and toss.  Let the ingredients cook for three minutes without stirring (this will caramelize the sugar in the corn and onions).  Add salt, pepper and chili flakes to taste. Stir again and allow to cook for three more minutes.

Remove from heat and serve.


Cutting Chicken Wings

I thought I’d make my first video.  This one is just showing you how I separate chicken wings into wing dings or drummettes.  You’ll notice i’m a headless chicken but that’s because my hair was looking crazy when I decided to do this.  Let me know if you find it useful.


Buffalo Wing Recipe

Buffalo Wings Recipe

Serves 2 (American sized portion)

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time 10-12 minutes

Tools

Tongs or slotted spoon/spatula

Deep sided pan or deep fryer

Kitchen Shears or sharp knife

Heat proof bowl

Paper towel

Kitchen thermometer (if not using a deep fryer)

Ingredients

10-12 whole chicken wings jointed

1 liter of oil (sunflower, vegetable, canola but not olive oil)

Buffalo Wing Sauce:

¼ cup butter

¼ cup Frank’s Red Hot

Dash Worcester Sauce

Method

Heat oil in pan to 375F or 180C

While oil is heating, place wings on a paper towel and dry thoroughly (if there is any water on the wings it will cause serious popping).  Once oil is at the correct temperature, carefully add the chicken pieces ensuring that they do not touch. You may need to fry the chicken in multiple batches. Fry for 10 – 12 minutes or until skin is crisp and chicken is cooked through.

While the chicken is frying in a large heat proof bowl add all sauce ingredients.  Set aside.

When chicken is cooked remove from oil with tongs and place on paper towel to drain.  While the chicken is draining, place sauce ingredients in microwave for 1 minute or until butter is completely melted.  Remove from microwave and stir and toss chicken into bowl.  Toss chicken around in sauce until completely coated.

Serve wings immediately.
