Catalan-Style Grilled Chicken Wings

Serves 4 as an Appetizer


For Wings

  • 1 lb chicken wings
  • kosher salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste

For Relish

  • ¾ cup dried figs, diced
  • ¼ cup sherry
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • ¼ cup diced roasted red peppers
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1 tbsp sherry vinegar
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp chopped basil
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • zest of 1 lemon


Prep Grill & Start Wings

  1. Assure that the grill is clean. Preheat to a “slow heat,” meaning, you should be able to hold your hand above it for 15-20 seconds
  2. Season wings liberally with salt and pepper
  3. Place on grill, rotating and flipping every couple of minutes to assure an even, golden-brown finish, and an internal temperature of 165º (this will take 15-20 minutes)

Make Catalan Relish

  1. Meanwhile, place the dried fruit in the sherry in a mixing bowl and let sit for 15 minutes
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well
  3. Remove wings from grill, top with Catalan relish and serve immediately
