Spicy Spanish Wings

February 13, 2007

3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 large whole chicken wings
1 tablespoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 lime, cut in wedges

Mix garlic with olive oil, and let mixture sit for at least 10 minutes so the flavor of the garlic infuses the oil. Then brush wings with the oil.

In a large bowl, combine the paprika, cayenne, oregano, salt and pepper, and mix them well. Add the wings, and toss to coat.

Grill or broil the wings for 15 to 25 minutes, turning now and then. You want them done through, with a crispy skin and a few blackened spots. Serve with lime wedges to squeeze over them.
