Flourless Fried Turkey Wings                                                                                                              


  • 4-6 bone-in turkey wings
  • 3 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 tsp cayenne spice
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • corn on the cob (halved) X 2
  • dash of salt


  1. Salt your turkey wings to taste.
  2. Add canola to pot and bring to a light bubble (not a full boil).
  3. Ensure you add enough canola oil to cover wings, but not so much that your pot overflows when wings are added.
  4. Once canola oil is at a light boil, carefully add turkey wings. Every 5 minutes slowly increase heat, and rotate wings with tongs, for 30 minutes, until they are nice and crispy.
  5. After 30 minutes, lower the heat to a simmer, and add peeled garlic cloves for 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. In a separate pot (halfway through cooking wings) bring water to boil, add salt, and then add halved corn on the cob. Turn heat off and cover for 5 minutes.
  7. Once wings are finished, plate and cover wings with paprika and cayenne spice. Let sit for 1 minute.
  8. Serve the tasty, flourless wings with the corn on the cob and impress all your friends!
