- Preparation and cooking time
- plus marinating
- Serves 10 - 12
- 50g sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp cumin seeds
- 1 tbsp coriander seeds
- 1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
- 1 tsp paprika
- juice 1 lemon , plus extra wedges to serve
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp tahini paste
- 25 chicken wings
- handful pomegranate seeds (from a tub or whole fruit)
- small handful coriander leaves, stems discarded
- lemon wedges, to serve
- STEP 1
To make dukkah, toast the sesame seeds in a frying pan until lightly golden, then transfer to a bowl. In the same pan, toast the cumin and coriander seeds until fragrant. Now combine all the spices, sesame seeds and some seasoning in a mini food processor, coffee grinder or pestle and mortar and blend to a coarse mix.
- STEP 2
Mix the lemon juice, olive oil and tahini paste and rub all over the chicken wings. Leave to marinate in the fridge for 1 hr.
- STEP 3
Reserve 1 tbsp of the dukkah mix and sprinkle the rest over the wings with 1 tsp salt. Toss to coat, and leave for up to 24 hrs in the fridge.
- STEP 4
Light the barbecue and wait until the coals are covered with a thin layer of white ash, which means it is hot enough to cook (or heat oven to 200C/ 180C fan/gas 6). Barbecue the wings, turning, for 25-30 mins until charred and cooked through (or roast in the oven for 45-50 mins). Transfer the wings to a big platter. Scatter over the reserved dukkah, the pomegranate seeds and coriander leaves, and serve with lemon wedges.
