Sorrel Glazed Air-fryer Wings

Here’s another taste if the Caribbean with a twist with these Airfryer wings topped with a homemade sorrel glaze.

I personally love to experiment with flavors. Sometimes we get into these routines and find ourselves eating the same things over and over. And that is OK, but we all need a little variety.

Weekends are made for quick meals and finger foods in our house but making them at home is always a plus especially when cooking with an airfryer.

Air-fryer wings

Air-fryer wings are so popular due to its quick cooking time and guilt-free fried cooking method.

I love that you can still get a really good crisp on your wings as long as you know the right settings to use. This recipe calls for coating the wings in seasoned flour, however these can be done without for a healthier and just as tasty option. I personally tend to fry them naked now.

Choosing the Right Setting:

For wings, I like to go high on temp with a medium cooking time, turning them half way so both sides get a nice char.

Setting tips:

Set the temperature to 200°C/392°F and the time to 20 min.

Cook the wings for 18- 20 minutes, turning them half way. This will give you a crisp outside with a tender juicy meat.

Making the Sorrel Glaze

Making sorrel glaze is very easy. Basically rinse your dried hibiscus then boil with ginger and spices. Separate the liquid then thicken with cornstarch.

Toss the cooked wings into the glaze and pop them back in the air-fryer for 1-2 minutes to bake the flavor in or eat them extra wet.

Storing the glaze

You should have glaze left over. It’s good on any meat especially salty meats like pork.

This can be used as a dip as well. Add some sriracha or hot sauce for an extr kick and dip your fries or shrimp or even veggies.

Next, boil water adding all of the ingredients apart from the sugar. Cook for 10 minutes to release the ginger and orange peel flavors then remove the ingredients, leaving just the liquid.

Now, add the brown sugar and continue to cook on medium until the liquid evaporates to half its original size.

Lastly, add cornstarch mix to the liquid and stir until it thickens. Turn off the heat and let rest until wings are ready.

To Start, Wash chicken in lemon and or vinegar water to get rid of the rawness, removing any feathers or film then cut them into drums and flats.

After, pat dry and add the green seasoning and other seasonings. Allow this to marinate for at least 30 minutes (overnight for better results in flavor).

Meanwhile in a bowl or large zip lock bag, combine the flour and seasonings.

Once the wings have marinated, coat them a few at a time into the seasoned flour and prepare them for the Air-Fryer.

Here, Preheat the air-fryer then spray or brush the basket with oil. Place the wings only a few at a time and set the temperature to 200°C/392°F for 18 - 20 minutes, turning them half way until they are golden and crisp.

NOTE: spray the coating with a little oil and turn often to ensure they brown throughout.

When all the wings have cooked spoon over some of the glass and toss into the wings or use a brush to glaze them.

Finish here for wet wings or place them back into the air-fryer for 2 minutes to bake the flavor into the coating.
