Middle Eastern cuisine hits all the right notes with these delicately spiced harissa chicken wings.



1/4 cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs harissa (Tunisian chilli paste) (see note)
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
12 chicken wings, tips removed
6 preserved lemon quarters (see notes), flesh and pith discarded, rind cut into thin strips
2 tbs caster sugar
2 tbs orange marmalade
1/2 cup each coriander, kuman and flat-leaf parsley leaves
2 tbs roughly chopped dill
1 tbs olive oil


Mix the extra virgin olive oil, juice, harissa, garlic and 1 tsp salt in a large bowl. Add the chicken wings and turn to coat, then marinate in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.

Place lemon rind, sugar, marmalade and 100ml water in a pan and bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, frequently brushing down sides of pan, for 8-10 minutes until a jam-like consistency. Cool.

Heat a chargrill pan over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken, meatier-side down, for 10 minutes, then turn and cook for a further 5 minutes or until cooked through.

Meanwhile, to make a herb salad, toss the herbs and olive oil together in a bowl.

Place chicken on a platter and scatter with salad. Serve with the marmalade.


Preserved lemon and harissa are available from Middle Eastern and gourmet shops.
