4o8 Jerk Chicken Wings


1. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). The oil should be just enough to cover wings entirely, an inch or so deep.

2. Combine the butter and Bigfat’s 4o8 hot sauce, in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir together and heat until butter is melted and mixture is well blended. Remove from heat and reserve for serving. You can also do this in the microwave in a microwave safe dish melting 5-10 seconds at a time.

3. In a small bowl mix together the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt. Place chicken wings in a large nonporous glass dish or bowl and sprinkle flour mixture over them until they are evenly coated. Cover dish or bowl and refrigerate for 60 to 90 minutes.

4. Fry coated wings in hot oil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until parts of wings begin to turn brown. Remove from heat, place wings in serving bowl, add hot sauce mixture and stir together. (If you prefer put wings in a zip lock bag then add the sauce mixture and close it. Then rub the sauce onto the chicken until it is well coated. Be careful, it will be a bit hot. Open and pour onto a plate.) Serve.

This recipe also works well using Bigfat's 8o8 Naga Jolokia Hot Sauce.

Elvis isn't the only one that likes a peanut butter and banana sandwich. Here's our spiced up take on an old classic.

This recipe can also be made using plantains but the cooking time will vary.

Prep Time: 5-10 mins

3. Right now there are two options, 1) you can place the sliced banana onto the peanut butter, cover the sandwich and eat it cold, OR 2) melt a teaspoon of yogurt spread or margarine in a frying pan and add the banana slices one at a time so they are spread out then dust with cinnamon.

4. Sauté for 2-3 minutes over medium heat and turn them over. Dust again with cinnamon and cook for 1-2 minutes more.

5. Remove the bananas from the pan and place onto the peanut butter side of the sandwich. Close and put the whole sandwich into the hot pan until brown (1—2 minutes) then flip for 1-2 minutes more. Be careful of melting peanut butter. It’s hot!

6. Put it on a plate and lunch is served. Don't forget the milk.
