Spicy Sriracha Chicken Wing Recipe for John

This recipe is for John.  You know who you are.....


Spicy Sriracha Chicken Wings-
10 pounds chicken wings, excess skin removed
1/4C coriander seeds, crushed
1t cumin seeds, crushed
1t cinnamon
1/4t ginger powder
2T kosher salt
1/4C extra-virgin olive oil
3/4C Sriracha chile sauce 
1 stick of unsalted butter, melted
1/2C chopped cilantro
Finely grated zest and juice of 3 limes
3 quarts vegetable oil for frying.  

In a very large bowl, toss the wings with the coriander and cumin seeds, cinnamon, kosher salt and olive oil. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 375°. Spread the wings on 3 large rimmed baking sheets and roast for about 30 minutes, until firm but not cooked through. (At this point, if you don't want to fry the wings, you can roast them for 1 hour longer, until crispy and golden.) 

Mix the Sriracha, butter, cilantro, lime zest and juice in a large bowl.

In a deep fryer or a very large saucepan, heat the vegetable oil to 375°.
Fry the wings in 4 or 5 batches until golden and crisp, about 5 minutes per batch; drain, shaking off the excess oil. As each batch is finished, add the wings to the sauce and toss well. Transfer the wings to a platter, leaving the sauce in the bowl for the remaining batches. 

Serve hot.
