When most people think of the word wings, in reference to food, they automatically think chicken wings. That’s ok! I’m not going to get upset at someone that enjoy eating chicken wings. However, turkey wings are also fantastic and are certainly an underutilized appetizer. Any way you decide to prepare them, turkey wings are fantastic! For this turkey wing recipe, I decided to grill the turkey wings and then combine them with garlic, butter, and Parmesan Cheese.
This turkey wing recipe is fairly simple and easy to prepare. It is a grilling recipe that doesn’t need a lot of prep time in the kitchen. The only preparation for this wing recipe really only requires garlic cloves to be made into a paste. You could also go out and buy garlic paste which will save even more time. I’m a big fan of fresh garlic though and it will only take a few minutes, along with a knife, olive oil, and kosher salt. Simply chop the garlic and then combine it with the oil and kosher salt. After combining, slide the side of your knife over the garlic over and over until the oil and the course salt turn the garlic into a paste.
After the wings are thoroughly cooked, place the wings in the sauce pan and coat them in the delicious garlic butter. Finally, sprinkle grated Parmesan Cheese over them. This creative appetizer will not disappoint.
