NYC Hot Sauce Expo 2017 Celebrates 5th Anniversary April 22 – 23

The NYC Hot Sauce Expo Celebrates Its 5th Anniversary

New York’s own High River Sauces proudly presents the 5th Annual New York City Hot Sauce Expo on April 22nd & 23rd 2017.

2017-nyc-expo-banner

The NYC Expo will feature up to 45 artisanal hot sauce makers from all over the United States and as far as Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand and South America. The NYC Hot Sauce Expo has grown into an International Hot Sauce celebration. Witness the action packed event with hot sauce tastings, eating challenges, spicy food vendors, craft beer, spicy cocktails and plenty of odd ball entertainment for the whole family.

The NYC Hot Sauce Expo will feature the Bloody Mary Mix-Down National Championship. Winners from AZ, CA & the Portland Hot Sauce Expo’s will be flown in to compete again NYC’s top mixologist in this ultimate Bloody Mary Mix-Down. Winner will receive $2500 cash and the beautiful Stoli Vodka Bloody Mary trophy.

Think you have what it takes to be crowned the Guinness Book of World Records – Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper Pepper Eating Contest, the World’s Hottest Pepper. The 2016 NYC Expo we witnessed Wayne Algenio smash the record by eating 119 grams in 60 seconds. Now the current record is held by Greg Foster when he ate 120 grams at the AZ Hot Sauce Expo on November 13th. Will the record come back to NYC?

Sriracha Week 2016 – Garlic Sriracha Wings

It’s National Sriracha Sauce Week! Here’s our to-die-for Sriracha Garlic Wings recipe. Sriracha sauce, crispy chicken wings, and tons of garlic make these hot and savory wings the *best* chicken wings we’ve ever cooked!

Sriracha Garlic Wings Recipe

sriracha garlic wings finished

Sriracha garlic wings.
The wings are first marinated, then baked for 20-30 minutes before being deep fried to crisp them up. Then, you toss them in the Sriracha, butter, cilantro, garlic and lime sauce before serving. Yum!!!
We’ll repeat the recipe at the end of this post.

The basics:

  • 4 pounds chicken wings, cut up (serves 4)
  • 1-2 quarts vegetable oil for deep-frying

For the marinade:

  • 1/8 cup ground coriander (2 Tbs)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 Tbs kosher salt
  • 1/8 cup extra-virgin olive oil(2 Tbs)

Step 1. In a large zip-lock bag, as seen above, combine coriander, cumin, salt and olive oil. Toss in the wings and massage the bag to coat. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight. Though the volume of the marinade seems small and barely coats the wings, it is critical to the success of this recipe.

Step 2.Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place wings in a single layer on a large, rimmed baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake for about 30 minutes, until wings are firm, but not done. (They’ll finish cooking in the deep-fryer). Remove them from the oven and place on a platter to dry before frying.

For the sauce:

  • 1/2 cup Hot Sriracha chili sauce (or to taste)
  • 3/4 stick (6 tbl) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced

Step 3. In a clean bowl, blend cilantro, minced garlic, lime zest and juice, and melted butter. Add 1/2 cup Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, combine and set aside

Step 4.Working in small batches, deep-fry wings until crispy and browned, 2-4 min. Drain briefly on paper towels, then toss the hot wings in the sauce. Let the wings sit for 2-5 minutes before serving so the flavors soak into the wings.

Step 5.Serve hot, on a platter with your favorite side dishes.

The original recipe by Cleveland, OH, Chef Michael Symon, is in the Feb ’08 issue of Food and Wine Magazine.
Huy Fong Sriracha Sauce needs no refrigeration.

Here’s the full recipe without interruption:

The basics:
* 4 pounds chicken wings, cut up (serves 4)
* 1-2 quarts vegetable oil for deep-frying

For the marinade:
* 1/8 cup ground coriander (2 Tbs)
* 1/2 tsp ground cumin
* 1 Tbs kosher salt
* 1/8 cup extra-virgin olive oil(2 Tbs)

For the sauce:
* 1/2 cup Hot Sriracha chili sauce (or to taste)
* 3/4 stick (6 tbl) unsalted butter, melted
* 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
* finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
* 4 large cloves garlic, minced

1. In a large zip-lock bag, combine coriander, cumin, salt and olive oil. Toss in the wings and massage the bag to coat. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight. Though the volume of the marinade seems small and barely coats the wings, it is critical to the success of this recipe.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place wings in a single layer on a large, rimmed baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake for about 30 minutes, until wings are firm, but not done. (They’ll finish cooking in the deep-fryer). Remove them from the oven and place on a platter to dry before frying.
3. In a clean bowl, blend cilantro, minced garlic, lime zest and juice, and melted butter. Add 1/2 cup Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce, combine and set aside
4. Working in small batches, deep-fry wings until crispy and browned, 2-4 min. Drain briefly on paper towels, then toss the hot wings in the sauce. Let the wings sit for 2-5 minutes before serving so the flavors soak into the wings.
5. Serve hot, on a platter with your favorite condiments

(serves 4 – figure 1lb wings per person)
