Glazed BBQ Chicken Wing and Lamb Chorizo Sausage Salad

First, of course you need chicken wings. Remember to clean them before you start marinating.

I had intended to make the Asian version so to marinate, I use hoisin sauce, oyster sauce, a dash of black pepper and white pepper, sugar, salt and a pinch of mono sodium glutamate. Sugar is used to give the glazy effect and not for the sweetness so, don't put too much of it.

Marinate at the duration of your choice. Naturally, the longer you marinate, the better it taste.

If you had leave the chicken to marinate in the fridge, take out an hour beforehand and leave it at room temperature. Reason being is that , you don't want your chicken to turn too brown before it is cook thoroughly.

Put dollops of butter (for taste and texture) on the chicken wings before you put them in the oven.

In the mean time , prepare your salad.

You can either pan fried the chorizo sausage or cook them in the oven. I opted for the latter since it's healthier and less oily. Once it's cooked, cut them in thin slices.

The usual cucumber and lettuce are used as the mains for the salad, while home made cruttons are added for garnishing.

The dressing is a combination of squeezed fresh lemon, wasabi and mayonaise.

Serve the salad with the chicken wing. Garnish the platter with chopped parsley. ;p
