Friday Night Pig Shots and Spicy Sticky Wings

Time to try some new things. First, made some pig shots, filled with cream cheese and chopped almonds, topped with brown sugar, cayenne, chili powder and some tsunami spin. These were good--here they are starting out (and used that thick cut bacon from Costco, regular bacon would not work for these).image

And then cooked:


Then wanted to try spicy sticky wings from necessary indulgences (Kristi's) site. I don't like fish sauce--anything that smells bad when you open a new bottle is just weird. Plus--how do you know when it goes bad? Or does it just come bad? But, I followed the recipe and used it--I could still smell it a little even after I reduced sauce way down. Next time might cut fish sauce in half and use half teriyaki. However, these did come out looking good (out of cilantro so I finished with some toasted sesame seeds) and were very good--nice little spice kick but not overpowering. image

    Everything looks great. What kind of dressing did you use on the grilled romaine?

  • On grilled romaine, added blue cheese crumbles and bacon when flipped on grill, and then just store bought blue dressing to finish once plated.

    Very nice!  Do not fear the fish sauce!!

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Agree with  SmokeyPitt.  Fish sauce adds a savoriness (umami) to just about any dish you add it to.  Everyone agrees that it smells awful out of the bottle, but you don't taste any of that in the final product.  I compare it to vanilla.  Vanilla is wonderful in desserts, but you would gag if you drank it straight.

     Great post - good advice on the thick cut for pigshots.  Have done them before but they didn't turn out as good. probably needed thicker bacon...
