Chicken Wings With Grilled Ginger Plum Coulis Recipe
4 pounds chicken wings, tips removed and cut at the joint
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/4 teaspoons freshly ground pepper, divided
4 plums, halved and pitted
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 cup sliced scallions
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Season wings with salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Heat grill to medium-high.
Place chicken and plum halves, cut side down, on grill. Reduce heat to medium and close grill cover. Grill plums for about 4 minutes on each side, or until soft but not falling apart. Remove plums to bowl of blender or food processor.
Increase heat on grill to medium-high. Continue to cook wings for an additional 8 to 10 minutes. Turn and grill for 10 to 15 minutes longer. Wings should register 170ºF when tested with an instant-read thermometer. When done, remove to serving platter.
While wings are grilling, to the plums add vinegar, hoisin sauce, ginger, soy sauce, scallions and remaining pepper. Process ingredients until it makes a smooth coulis.
During the last 3 to 4 minutes of grilling, baste wings with 1/4 cup coulis.
To serve, drizzle wings with remaining coulis or serve coulis in bowl on the side for dipping. Sprinkle wings with chopped cilantro and serve immediately. Yields 4 servings.
